We have so many things to be thankful for in this organization. We’ve been able to assist several families with various needs. We have clients who are beginning to change their lifestyles. They are taking baby steps and have a long way to go, but they are heading in the right direction. SPECIAL POINTS OF We are so grateful for all the contributors who step forward to help Love INC out. Because of their generosity and their love for Christ, we have been able to continue this ministry. SPECIAL POINTS OF INTEREST: A message from the Executive Director Throughout this year we have had our ups and downs like everyone else. I think what makes us strong and keeps us strong is our faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. Christmas is a time to celebrate Jesus’ birth and to be thankful that we have Christ in our hearts and lives. Be thankful for the freedom of religion. There are many countries that would be jailed or put to death because of their belief in the One and Only God.

JESUS IS THE REASON… We may experience disappointments or heartache during the Christ mas season, but Jesus and His salvation always give us reason to celebrate—Anne Cetas How wonderful that we on Christmas morn Though centuries have passed since Christ was born, May worship still the Living Lord of men, Our Savior, Jesus, Babe of Bethlehem.— Hutchings “And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.” Luke 2: 8-11 Love In the Name of Christ Return Service Requested Love INC of Adams County needs your financial support to continue… As a 501(c)3 Christian organization, we are dependent upon the individuals, churches, organizations, and businesses within Adams County to keep going.
