A message from Brother Jaimie Alexander

Dear FUMC Family
The Season of Advent has arrived! It began on Sunday and will continue until we re-experience the birth of Jesus on December 25. “There are more reasons to take Advent seriously than there are decorative lights on your Christmas tree. Advent is often overlooked as a pre-game warm-up for Christmas, which is unfortunate because it is a rich season for spiritual growth. It launches a suspense-filled journey leading us through the darkness of the world to the hope found in the Christ child. Over the four weeks of Advent, space is made for us to move closer to God’s presence, and to receive the love, mercy and healing our hearts desperately desire. If you desire something more meaningful than an Amazon gift card can purchase, then I recommend you thoughtfully observe Advent this month. Choose to carve out time from the relentless holiday pace to encounter the holy. Finding this time is easier said than done this time of year, but it is possible to keep the beauty and blessing of Advent from slipping through our fingers.” A quote by Billy Doidge Kilgore.
To help you daily experience the richness of the season a weekly Advent devotional is available for you! You are invited to pick up a devotional guide on each Sunday of Advent and you will receive it daily by email also starting today.
I want to thank the faithful small group of volunteers who helped to decorate the church on Monday for Christmas. I hope others will join the group in a few weeks and help take down the decorations. I also want to thank the many volunteers who helped in any way to prepare, serve, and clean up from the church Thanksgiving dinner last Thursday. It was a very special day. I appreciate all the ways people share in ministry at FUMC Bella Vista!
Merry Christmas!
Bro. Jaimie
Don’t just come to church, Be the CHURCH!
