A Note From Pastor Tim . . .
Merry Christmas to you! I hope this holiday season is turning out to be a great time for you. God has blessed us in so many ways, but one of the greatest ways is the gift of friendship.
Some people think that family is automatically closer than friends, but some of you know from personal experience that that is not true. Often a family member will be one of our closest friends because of our history together. However, many people are very disconnected from family and have found a substitute family among friends.
I think everyone needs a family and a place to belong. Being a family to people who need one is part of the strength and beauty of Greentree. Maybe you can find someone who is alone this Christmas and make them a part of your family for, at least, a few hours. After all, starting a family is really what the celebration of Christmas is all about (Eph. 2:19). The Son of God became a son of man that sons of men might become sons of God.
