It is only by grace that 2013 has proven itself fruitful.  Riding on the wings of pure grace, we breezed through the 12 eventful months without even realizing that another year is about to end.  What do we have to show for it, you ask. Is that really necessary? We do not work for personal gain nor for recognition. We cannot add to His finished work.  We have learned to work for the audience of One. Not that we aim to please in order to earn His favor.  What we have done for the past year, what we are still doing, and what we are about to do—we do it all for the glory of the One who came to redeem us from a doomed future.  And speaking of the future, we look forward to the incoming year with hopes of more blessings, more favor, and more revelation of Who He really is in our lives. Let’s make 2014 all about Him—“forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, pressing on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called us heavenward in Christ Jesus (Phil. 3:13-14)”.  Onward, faithful servant! 

Christmas at SFCC is always an important event. It is not about the food, nor about the presents.  The celebration is all about the Reason for the Season—Jesus.  There is always a reason to rejoice because of what He has done for us.  

 Everyone received a warm, welcoming smile.

 Awesome worship to the One who sits upon the throne
