Dear Church Family,
John 14:27 declares “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” In recent memory, have we ever needed more to appreciate “Joy to the World and Peace to All Men?” If there is anything that should inspire our thankfulness and trigger our gratitude and calm, it should be this great message of Peace that comes from knowing Jesus Christ!
As we approach the Christmas season, we are setting aside December 13th for our Annual Christmas Offering.
We have set a goal of $4,600, above and beyond our regular giving. It is our “gift” to the One whose birthday we celebrate. We will, of course, receive towards this offering until December 31st, but we want our main push to be on the 13th.
After starting 2020 with months of very low funds, you have responded in a tremendous way. Your generosity has enabled us to support missions at a 5 year high level, help reach our community, and see people make professions of faith!
Because of our need and the great opportunity we have in Hardin Valley, we are asking everyone to give towards our Christmas offering so we can support our missionaries and continue to reach people the 80,000 people that live directly around our church here in East Tennessee. Simply put, we are so thankful for each faithful, consistent giver; we pray for more to catch the vision of stewardship; and we need those who will give extra out of love for Christ for this special offering. You may be able to give $2,500, or $250, or $25, but let God use you for His glory! Please give thankfully, prayerfully, and sacrificially as God leads you to help. How exciting to be able to try to give more than you did last year!
God has certainly blessed our church these years and now as we stand upon 30 years of ministry, we are more excited than ever. For all the people saved, baptized, and added to the church this year we are truly overwhelmed.
Personally, we would like to thank you for the privilege of serving the Lord as a family here in Knoxville at Hardin Valley. We have been blessed by your love, support and generosity.
