                                                         ….did not our hearts burn within us?   Luke 24:32

                                                                                  January 2007
   A Note from Your President
   Welcome to a New Year, new beginnings and fresh opportunities to serve our Lord
   Jesus Christ. I love new beginnings, the chance to begin anew and accomplish all
   those things I long to do. You know, that never ending check list of “To do’s” that
   never quite get done. Like….

          Reading the 8 books I purchased at the Christian bookstore last year, but never
           got around to reading because I kept buying and reading more books.
          Spending more time in daily devotion and prayer.
          Having the Bible and the Holy Spirit direct my decisions rather than attempting
           to make decisions without first listening for His guidance.
          Following through with a budget so that I may be a faithful steward of all that
           the Lord has entrusted me with.
          Boldly sharing the love of Christ with all who I meet. (Remembering that I am
           just called to plant seeds and He will bring the seeds to harvest.)
          Love others in thought, word and deed; as Christ has loved us. (I guess this
           means even those who tend to get on my last nerve!)

   Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has
   given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the
   dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade – kept in heaven for
   you, who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation
   that is ready to be revealed in the last time. (1 Peter 1:3-4) Thankfully Jesus Christ
   offers us a new beginning each and every day. So take some time in the New Year to
   “Be still, and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10).

   Please Lord let me in all that I do, seek Your face to make all things new again.

   Blessing to you for a Christ centered New Year,

   Susan Eckel

Snack Agape Reminder:

Please remember to…bring your snack agape to the Sendoff…if at all possible.
It helps the Agape team to better judge the amount of agape for the weekend and
reduces the last minute pleas (for snack agape) we’ve had on previous weekends.

 Take your snack to the Agape room or give it to an Agape team member as you arrive
for Sendoff; or if you have a pilgrim, you can deliver it after the Sponsor’s Hour is

Thank you!
