  Then God said, “Let there be light!” And there was light. Genesis 1:3

  Have you noticed something different recently?  Something maybe a little brighter?  Maybe as you drove by the church or when you stepped into the fellowship hall?  We have some new lights!  In our parking lot, the lights on our light pole were broken and instead of just replacing the old ones, we decided to upgrade to LED lights which are much brighter and more energy efficient.  At the same time, we decided to fix all the lights around the outside of the church as well over our door ways, again replacing all the lights with new LED ones.  Not only does this help to illuminate the outside of the church, it helps us with safety and security. 

  At the same time, despite heroic efforts from Lyndon Schmidt over the years, as well as others, our fellowship hall lights were starting to fail.  And so we made the decision to replace and upgrade all of those as well, again with energy efficient LED lights.  They are much brighter and now all the lights even match! 

  We were able to do this because of your generosity and your financial contributions.  Now, replacing lights might not seem like a big deal but it is.  The parking lot was dark and unsafe.  New lights have made it safer.  The new lights in the fellowship hall have really brightened it up and will save on our electric bill.  All of this is because of your financial support to this congregation.  So thank you!

  And don’t forget that every day God shines light into your life through Jesus Christ.  The light of the world shines upon you every day, showing you that you are loved, forgiven, and saved.  May God bless you today and always!
