27th November 2014
Four weeks today is Christmas Day. The Tibbert family love Christmas - a definite favourite time of year, but if it's going to be a success now is the time for action! It's time to get everything in place for the festive season...
So, we have ordered our King's Christmas Tree. (Check!)
We have picked up our Big Red Box. (Check!)
We have begun to invite friends and family members to the Carol Services, where the theme this year is Home. Please join us and continue to pick up flyers and tickets for the One Church evening Carol services. There are still more people the Tibbert family intend to invite along so the ‘check' will have to wait on that one!
In the midst of all our Christmas planning, yesterday I had the privilege of meeting Krish Kandiah, the founder of Home for Good and President of the London School of Theology. We had a great time together sharing our stories and it was exciting to show him around our Lee site.
On the Tibbert home front we will be hosting Deb's parents on Christmas Day and having a day with the extended Tibbert family members over the following weekend - we need to make sure everything will be in place. I know that many of you will be making similar plans and preparations. This is a busy time of year, but let's continue in the midst of all the activity to remember and rejoice that a Saviour has been born - more than that, this Saviour has come and made His home with us. Over the last few weeks at King's, over fifteen people have made first time commitments to Christ! They have come home to the Father in and through Christ, and there is now much rejoicing in heaven!
Help! Christmas is coming! But for those who have become Christians amongst us recently, Christmas has come early. Praise God!
