December Update from Sam Wagner, Music Minister

By the time you read this I will have the joy of partnering in ministry with our Pastor and friend, Dr. Greg Heisler. One of the blessings of this life has been watching God save, call and nurture Bro. Greg. I'm so grateful that God has allowed Greg, Laura, Andrew and Ben to come home equipped to lead MABC. Join me in praying faithfully for our new shepherd.

Thanks to Kenny, Jim, Chris, Chad, Matthew, Joe and their wives and families for being diligent and thorough in the search process. God has been honored by your faithfulness.

I would also like to thank each of you for your kind words and love during these past several months. God has so richly blessed us in being a part of this church family. Your nurture and care for our family has far surpassed anything we could have ever dreamed of. We love you deeply. It's out of that love that we've been honored to serve you. We'll never be able to return to you all you've given us.

I hope that each of you will have a great Christmas. I look forward to celebrating it with you in so many ways. Dr. Greg will preach his first sermon with us on December 3. That night we will share the Living Nativity with the community. On December 10 we'll hear from our young bell ringers. December 17 we will meet at 5 PM to go caroling to our shut-ins (they love this)! And on December 24 we will meet at 5 for our Christmas Eve Lord's Supper and Candlelight Service. I look forward to celebrating Christmas with all of you!

Merry Christmas,
