A recent survey discovered that the last couple of years has made Americans significantly angrier, sadder, lonelier, and more worried. More than one-third reported feeling these emotions more strongly than before the pandemic. I’m sure we feel this way for multiple reasons, but one leading cause is the News. We have been fed a continual diet of bad news from newspapers to social media to Mainstream media for almost the last two years. Then we have just endured another contentious election filled with negative ads. With all that going on, it’s time for Good News!
Our mission here as a church is STATE YOUR MISSION STATEMENT. That mission is grounded in our faith in Jesus Christ as the world’s Savior. We are entering one of our most sacred times as a church, Christmas. The story of Christmas is a story of good news. The Gospel of Luke tells about the birth of Jesus. It records the story of nearby shepherds tending their flocks at night when an angel of the Lord appears to them. Here is what the text says, “the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people.”
In a world filled with bad news, CHURCH NAME is committed to sharing the Good News of the Gospel with our community and world. The faithful generosity of our members allows us to spread the good news of the Gospel. This month, we ask our church family to prayerfully help us spread the Good News through our special Christmas offering! We accomplished much due to your generosity, but there is much more to do.
Every time you give here at our church, you help us spread that Good News in our town and worldwide. Let’s give generously today so that Good News can continue to spread.
