For our Christmas service this year we were blessed by a presentation from the Church Choir and Drama Team of "A Smoky Mountain Christmas Story--The Gift". It was one of the most enjoyable services we have had. Thanks to all those who participated. I'm sure lots of time and effort was spent in preparation for this event.

Now for your musical enjoyment....

On Sunday, December 21st the church was treated to music presented by "Jason and the Jamaica Me Crazy Band". This may have been the highlight of our Christmas music.

Birthday Party for Jesus

The children have decided to have a birthday party for Jesus on December 21st. Each child is going to bring a gift they think will please God. It will be interesting to see the different presents they bring.

As many of you know LuAnn broke her patella shortly after posting her Thanksgiving blog. We want to thank everyone for their prayers on her behalf. She is doing fine and is determined to make a full recovery. We never made it to church to help the children lead everyone in singing "Thank you for the Blessings". Brenda rose to the occasion and lead them for us. Amanda was brave and had children's church. I heard the children were great and we appreciate everyone who helped. It's a comfort knowing that others are willing to step in when situations arise. LuAnn did make it out of the hospital and got to attend our family celebration. We still give thanks for all God has given us. She had an "inconvenient disaster" but God still took care of her. He sent her to a wonderful doctor who put her back together again. LuAnn wants to especially thank Martin. He called her and prayed for her over the phone and he was there for her surgery. Knowing someone cares means a lot.
