The Community United Presbyterian Church

 

                          

And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, Who has been given to us.”

                                                                                  Romans 5: 5

   As I sit writing this message for the Newsletter, it is –6 degrees outside, with a possible wind chill of –24 degrees! It is a new record for this day! But my wife and I are bundled up with our children—warm, safe, and blessed. We give thanks for those blessings each day.

  We know not everyone is as fortunate, but we also believe it is our mission as Christians to help others in need, as Christ commanded.

   Please remember all of our mission projects during this time of year.  Donate food, blankets, sleeping bags, Adult coats, hats, and gloves.

   We will make sure they are given to those in need. Most of all, we remember that our greatest blessing is God’s love for us and the gifts of forgiveness, salvation, and the Holy Spirit. This blessing warms our hearts and souls.

God Bless you and Stay Warm!
