Happy New Year to one and all!
As we begin 2021, we face it with new hopes and dreams. We never know what God has in mind for us, but through faith we know we’ll never have to face it alone.
Unfortunately, CO-VID 19 numbers remain high so we will NOT be meeting in person in January. We will be using Google Meet for our gathering on January 12 at 10am. If you have not joined us in the past and would like to see what DWM is all about please feel free to join us. You will need to contact Nicole Martin and let her know you would like to receive the information to be able to connect with us.
This past year has been a tough one. We lost 2 of our members, Ella Mickelson and Patricia Pedigo. While we all will miss them, we know that they are with our Lord. And we ask that you continue to keep their families in your thoughts and prayers. We also had one of our members, Cathy Crabtree, move to Ohio. However, you can still stay in contact with her. Cathy’s new address is 1023 E. Linden Ave., Miamisburg, Ohio. 45342. I know she’d love to hear from everyone.
Even though 2020 has been hard, we’ve been able to pull together to bring hope and joy to many in our community. The outreach programs, such as Nourish Food Bank, Murfreesboro’s Domestic Violence Shelter, Coat Ministry, Coldest Nights, Journey Home, our Angel Tree Family to name a few, that we as a church have been involved with have provided much to those in need. I know we all will face this new year together as one with Christ and continue these works that benefit so many.
On a personal note:
Looking back at the past year, well it’s easy to say that was yucky. I’m sure others may think of more profound words but for me it was yucky. And sometimes I need help to get out of that feeling of yuckiness. I found a website, Beautiful in Jesus, that has a post: 31 Bible Verses on overcoming adversity. I thought, January has 31 days so why not reflect on one each day. Here is the link if you want to check it out: https://beautifulinjesus.com/overcoming-adversity/
Not all my days were yucky, there were many days that I found joy. Knowing and working with my Central Christian family this past year has truly brought light into my life. And for this I thank you.
Here’s looking towards a joyful 2021!
