“Be amazed” – this Sunday at ValleyPoint Church!

“Be amazed.”  This is a phrase you will hear on Sunday at ValleyPoint Church.  I couldn’t be more excited to be sharing with you from Luke 2:8-20 and how people were astonished at the story the shepherds shared.  In addition to lighting the second Advent candle, I will continue with our “O Little Town” series.  The shepherds will be the focus of our learning, and I think, you’ll walk away surprised at the simple faith of this group.  They were amazed and ready to share.  Are we?

1They hurried to the village and found Mary and Joseph. And there was the baby, lying in the manger. 17 After seeing him, the shepherds told everyone what had happened and what the angel had said to them about this child. 18 All who heard the shepherds’ story were astonished…   Luke 2

We launched our Christmas Offering Initiative for 2012!  We have a vision this year of generously meeting the needs of poverty (through CityTeam in Chester, PA), orphans (through funding a feeding center for orphans in Smolensk, Russia), and families in crisis (through serving two families in our community).  I believe, God is going to use our generosity to impact our community and the world!  Begin planning and praying now about what God wants you to share.  Our goal is $30,000.  You can give online or at ValleyPoint Church through Sunday, January 6th.  You will need to designate your giving as the “Christmas Offering.”  You can do that online or in the memo section of your check.

Save the date for our next Love Day – Saturday, December 15th.  You can read all about the different opportunities here.  It begins at 8:30am at our Bethel Road Campus.  Just arrive, sign-up for one of the impact opportunities, and then have a blast serving others!  Love Day wraps-up at approximately 12:00pm.

So…please get the word out to your friends.  Extend that invitation to join you this Sunday at ValleyPoint!  Can’t wait to see you there.
