This December at Sonrise we decided to make it our goal this to FREE Christmas ...
- We wanted to FREE this "holy day" from being simply materialistic shopping holiday!
- We also wanted to proclaim the FREE gift of God's grace to as many people as possible!
One of the ways we did that is we held a total of eight Christmas Eve Candlelight Services in three locations! Another thing we decided to do was take a FREE Christmas Offering to help others experience the freedom of God's Amazing Grace ...
- I'm thrilled to say that 1,678 people joined us to worship the King who was born at CHRISTmas! (That was a 40% increase over the previous year!)
- I'm even more thrilled that over $40,000 was given to help provide "clean water" around the world, assist with benevolent needs in our own community, and to multiply our outreach efforts! (This will all "over & above" our other ministry giving!)
I'm proud of our church ... and I'm humbled to serve as one of it's pastors!
