December 21, 2014 Bulletin - Living for the Brand Cowboy Church

Dear LFTB Family,
We are four days away from celebrating the
greatest event in the history of childbirth. It is
a time of remembering that the God who
created the universe and keeps it in order has
come to earth to be salvation for mankind. It
is a time when we see God's simple plan of
salvation made known to us through an
innocent baby born in a cave outside a little
town in Israel called Bethlehem.
As we go through the Christmas Holidays,
let's all remember what the world has
forgotten. Let's remember Jesus is the reason
for the season and not the presents or bright
lights.
Mitzi and I wish all of you a very Merry
Christmas, and our desire is for Christ to
become real in all of our lives.
Brother Dale
