I have enjoyed digging into our scripture passage for this Sunday. It is the story of Mary and Elizabeth, supporting one another through their unique pregnancies as described in Luke 1:39-55. After the angel told Mary she would have a baby, she hurried to visit her cousin Elizabeth. In a culture that was heaping shame on both of those women, they offered encouragement and care to one another. There is power in sisterhood! We need our sisters as we navigate our way through life. And men, you too, need one another! We would be wise to invest in our friendships. They sustain us in the tough times and increase our joy in good times. I especially treasure the friends I have had since childhood. Who are the special friends in your life? Take a moment to lift them up this week.
Dec. 19th worship 8:00 at Grace, 9:30 at Pine Creek, 11:00 at Holbrook. Zoom is at 9:30.

This week the children will present a Christmas pageant at Pine Creek during the 9:30 service. Come catch their joy and experience the Christmas story through their eyes. The big question is, “Who will bring Jesus a gift?”
Dec. 26th is Brunch, Songs, and Surprises at 11:00 am. Holbrook will host all of us for a morning of Christmas stories, songs, and brunch.

Last Sunday, the responsibilities of the other half of my job took me to Shiloh UMC in Billings to preach for them and offer support as their Congregational Resource Minister. We had a good morning together. Attached is the sermon I shared with them.
May the Lord Bless you and Keep you!
