Christmas is a great opportunity to invite new people to the church, and this December we had 29 first-time visitors to the church with a weekly attendance average of 46 people.
This coming year, we are planning to do further renovations to our building. If you are handy with painting or building and would like to come give us a hand, please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, if you would like to give a donation toward the cost of the renovations, you can find more info at: downhambaptist.org/renovations.
We are continuing to work at discipling and equipping people for ministry. We are also trying to consistently reach out with the gospel. We recently gave out 5000 invitations for our Christmas services and participated in a Christmas festival through which we were able to add many new people to our church newsletter list.
Thank you for continuing to pray for us and the work here. We greatly value and appreciate your prayers and support.
