"In seed time learn, in harvest teach, in winter enjoy" William Blake

The Holiday is in full swing for many people, the lights are going up the Christmas parties are scheduled and the choirs are tuning up the carols.  We hope that the real reason for the season will become more and more true in your life this year.  Jesus left his Glory and perfection in heaven to come and rescue us, we have so much to celebrate and show the world how great his love is.

A few events to mark on your calendar. 

Saturday December 7th, we'll be joining  up with friends at the Salvation Army to Adopt a Kettle for the Day at the North Sydney Sobey's.  The money taken in these kettles stays in the community to help our neighbors through the tough winter season.  You can sign up at church this Sunday for a time slot. 

We'll be having another CB Screaming Eagles Chapel on December 10th.  Looking forward to sharing some good news about Jesus with the hockey team

The Cape Breton Christian School will be having there Christmas Concert also on December 10th.  This may be their last concert at Grace Fellowship as the building project at Balls Creek is coming along nicely.

There are plenty of opportunities this time of year to be the hands and feet of Jesus, invite your family and friends to one of the many concerts taking place, take some cookies to your neighbor, buy some groceries for a family you know is struggling financially, or hundreds of other small acts of kindness.  People were made to know the truth of a savior coming to make a way for us to know our Father in Heaven.  Use your time well this Christmas to share the love of Jesus, and watch the Christmas cheer grow!
