Merry Christmas!
Signs of Christmas
Reading the Signs
It is amazing how many things God put in place to prepare for the coming of His Son into the world. There are countless prophecies and a myriad of strategic events that could only point to Jesus Christ. In spite of all that God did to set up signs pointing to the Messiah's coming, the world, and His chosen people, still missed Jesus when He came.
The danger for us is that we get busy with life and make the same mistake.  We miss His signs.  This Christmas Season at Sunlight we are becoming experts in the "Signs" that point to Christmas.  If we can become adept at recognizing God's signs maybe there is hope that we we won't miss what is most important.  I'll see you this Sunday as we look at another sign God placed in history that pointed directly to Jesus Christ.

Christmas Eve Service will be 6 p.m.! (No service Christmas Day)

Vision, Huddle & Skills. Thanks for those of you who attended our VHS meeting.  The budget was unanimously supported.  It is a big step of faith, we trust God for the future.  We also had a great night of celebrating our relaunch and the work God is doing in our church.
Movie Night

Join us for Christmas Fun!
Engaging Christmas
Thanks to all of you who have decided not to just passively receive the Christmas Season but to actively engage the mission of Christmas by giving to those in need!  All of the migrant families have been adopted.  We hope to have more families for you to adopt this Sunday.  We also have a great supply of items started in the Fellowship Hall for the people of Oasis!  I am so encouraged by your love and generosity this Christmas Season!  Go Sunlight!

 O asis Compassion Agency:
We will be collecting items for the upcoming holiday season for Oasis Compassion Agency. We asked what is most needed at all times. Food items are always welcome but keep these things you may not have considered on your list as well.
Bath Items (hygiene Items) :
           Bath Soap
           Tooth Brush
           Feminine Pads
  Children's products are appreciated as well.
We are always low in sugar, oil, rice, and coffee but everything else is very welcomed.
From Oasis Compassion: I like to ask donors to send note cards with positive messages. They are always so excited when they get their hygiene kit with a card. The need for hygiene items is huge! They cannot buy these products with food stamps!!!
