THANK YOU NOTES
Teri and I would like to thank the congregation for the lovely money tree we received at the Holiday Fellowship. We enjoyed “plucking” it together. Our hope is that each of you had a joyful holiday with family and friends. ~~ Joe

New Bible Classes Starting On Wednesday, January 6th
Kynn Maxwell will teach in the Fellowship Room, his topic will be “The Apostle Peter”. These lessons will examine “Peter, the Man”, “The Message” and “The Myth”.
In the Auditorium, Joe Winnett will be teaching lessons from “The Book of Acts”. This unique study will examine the historic record of the church that Christ left behind after His ascension. The Book of Acts is most useful for understanding how the church began as well as seeing the plan of salvation in action. We will also see how the church dealt with some of its early problems. Two very good classes to choose from!
Beautiful Footnotes . . .
13 For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”14 How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? 15 And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!” Romans 10:14-15 (ESV)
In reflecting at a year’s end and a new one’s beginning, we see the link in the saving of sinners, the saving news of the Gospel, and the faithful believers who support and send out those who live and proclaim the gospel. Through the blessings of the Father, the love of the Lord Jesus and the guidance of the Holy Spirit, the Highland Lakes church of Christ has been privileged to be involved in supporting outreach efforts via various ways to those who have not heard about the Lord and His saving grace.
