Thank You! All gifts have been collected for the Angel Tree

What a joy it is to give! Thank you to everyone who has supported our special mission projects for Christmas: All gifts have been collected for the Angel Tree, and were delivered to the Salvation Army to prepare for distribution to families who needed a little love from you this year!
The pile of gifts for Daystar residents (hats, gloves, socks, and underwear) is growing. And a team of dedicated crafters, led by Missy S., have prepared hundreds of special Christmas cards to distribute on behalf of the church. Thank you all!

I am no longer my own, but thine. 
Put me to what thou wilt, rank me with whom thou wilt. 
Put me to doing, put me to suffering. 
Let me be employed by thee or laid aside for thee, exalted for thee or brought low for thee. 
Let me be full, let me be empty. 
Let me have all things, let me have nothing. 
I freely and heartily yield all things to thy pleasure and disposal. 
And now, O glorious and blessed God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, thou art mine, and I am thine. So be it. And the covenant which I have made on earth, let it be ratified in heaven. Amen.
– The Wesley Covenant Prayer
