Christmas Greetings!

Text:

When God reaches for man, we call it Christmas.

Through an act of love, greater than
our minds can comprehend,
you have been called by the great heart of God.

He knew you before you were born;
He called you to Himself through his Son Jesus Christ;

and He calls you today,
at this season of celebration,
to know Jesus as Savior and Lord.

You have been called:

How will you respond?

If you would like to know Jesus as Savior and Lord, call the Need Him Ministry at 1-888-NEED HIM or go online here.

Frugal Weekend Entertainment Option #2

Absolutely Worth the Trip to Plano!
David Nevue, Solo Pianist and Composer in Concert
Sunday, November 22

  

I normally try to “stay” in Fort Worth for my frugal entertainment recommendations. However, the David Nevue concert is going to be amazing, so I must make mention (can’t believe it is FREE!). 

If you have never heard of award-winning solo pianist, David Nevue, his piano style is similar to George Winston or Jim Brickman — beautiful, touching, and with an appeal to all ages (hear samples of his music here).   

You will not want to miss this Thanksgiving concert Sunday night.  It will be a great evening and a true gift and treat to all who listen!
