On December 7, 1914, Pope Benedict XV suggested a temporary hiatus of the war for the celebration of Christmas. His suggestion wasn’t held as important but his prayer was. God did something that will be forever remembered. On Christmas Eve, many German and British troops fighting in World War I sang Christmas carols to each other across the lines, and at certain points the Allied soldiers even heard brass bands joining the Germans in their joyous singing.
There’s a wonderful mix of worship, praise, fun, prayer, giving and loving happening at church through the season! There are also multiple ways to participate as we continue to try to keep everyone safe and healthy. Join us in the JOY of the Christmas Season!
Empathy & Hope is our new Grief Support Group that will kick off on Monday, December 7, 2020 and will meet each Monday at 7:00 PM at South Daytona Christian Church. We will not meet on December 28th though due to the holiday week. It's a natural thing to struggle with the loss of a loved one. A group like this can offer support and comfort. It's a safe place for someone going through this kind of loss.
*Share memories of your loved ones
*Learn more about grief
*Meet others who understand
*Judgement free environment
What a year! And, even though you might not believe it, there's still so much to be thankful for! As you consider your blessings, please also consider helping with this project and sharing it with others. Helping others to have a good meal for Thanksgiving can really make a positive impact on a family. Thanks in advance for being so kind as to help! We are also collecting items for the Food Pantry Christmas Store. New or gently used items that our patrons can buy at very low cost (no clothing) will be accepted through the first week of December.
We're getting closer every week to our goal and it's exciting! Just in case you haven't heard . . . We've had to postpone our trip to the D.R. this year to build a house with Casas por Cristo. But, that doesn't mean that God's work will be postponed! It is our goal to raise $10,000 by the end of October to still build a house for a needy family. The Casas group (and our own Ian Dugger) will make sure it gets done! Yes, that's a big goal, but we have a big God! We will have some really cool t-shirts to give to anyone who donates $20 or more!
