My Beloved Brothers and Sisters in Christ!

HAPPY February, the month when love is in the air. I am not sure we will see a lot of evidence of that in the world, however, as Christians there should be lots of LOVE in our hearts. The month of Love reminds us that it is not always easy to love those around us, those whose beliefs and opinions differ from ours, those who have hurt us or betrayed us, those we consider as our enemies, those.... According to 1 John 4:16, God Is Love, “And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. GOD IS LOVE, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him.” So my brothers and sisters, if God is Love, and through Jesus Christ, God abides in us, then we are LOVE and are TO LOVE. So let us focus on sharing love with everyone we meet so by this they will know we belong to God through Jesus Christ.
We will begin the month with Meet & Greet the first Sunday, followed by our Valentine’s Dinner on the 12th, and will end the month by preparing ourselves for the Holy Season of Lent through our Ash Wednesday Service on the 26th. There will be opportunities to improve our balance and health through Tai Chi on Tuesdays and Fridays, a Bible Study in Tellico Village at Joel and JoLynn’s house on Tuesday evenings at 6:30 on the Apocrypha, as well as two opportunities for study during Lent on Wednesdays at 11:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. (Made for a Miracle: From Your Ordinary to God’s Extraordinary @ 11 and Embracing the Uncertain: A Lenten Study for Unsteady Times @ 6).
As we plan and look for ways to engage our community in 2020 and step out in faith through intentional stewardship and growing our community of faith, WE NEED YOU and your support through your prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness. Let us work together to be ALL that God has called and created us to be as individuals and as a church.
God has great plans for us a church and we need to be open and live into the possibilities. May God surround you and over- whelm you with His amazing love, grace, forgiveness and mercy to draw ever closer in relationship with Him

Matthew 28:18-20 “And Jesus came and said to them, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age."
