Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

a good year?

On birthdays, anniversaries, January 1st...
we all hope that the next year
will bring happiness.
We hope for a good year!

There are never any guarantees.

How about a glorious, joyous eternity?

“The very happiest persons I have ever met with
have been departing believers.
The only people for whom I have felt any envy
have been dying members of this very church,
whose hands I have grasped in their passing away.
Almost without exception I have seen in them
holy delight and triumph.
And in the exceptions to this exceeding joy
I have seen deep peace,
exhibited in a calm and deliberate readiness
to enter into the presence of their God.”
- C.H. Spurgeon
