Merry Christmas
May I take this opportunity to thank you for your support this year. We do appreciate it and look forward to serving you in 2015.

I (Liz) would like to take the opportunity to remind you that the celebration of Christmas Day is about the birth of a real historical person, Jesus Christ, who was also God in the flesh, who came to earth to live and die as a substitute for our sins. We celebrate his birth at this time and remind ourselves of his message to repent and believe in Him. May his love and peace surround you at this busy time.
Merry Christmas to you all!
