During this years' annual food drive, EES successfully delivered over 300lbs of canned foods and non-perishable food items to
Clayton Area Ministries
. We hope that we have brought safety, security, and peace of mind to individuals and family in a slightly different way this year and are thankful we had the opportunity to do so.
During this time of year we are bombarded by seasonal radio and television commercials, mail-in rebates, coupons, emails, etc... trying to capture our attention for the purpose of selling us goods or services. Since Christmas continues to increase as a large marketable industry with the focus on pricey gifts, decorations, and banquets, let's not forget the historical account of Jesus the Christ and the life-giving providence He provides to all mankind. While some may choose not to believe in this controversial story of a baby Savior, many of us here at EES join with millions of people
across the world
in observing valuable traditions of celebrating Christmas because of Christ. Lastly, please pray for our active duty military personnel and their families on the home-front who are unable to celebrate with their family during this time. In a free nation where everyone experiences the blessed opportunity to celebrate Christmas in their own way, we hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas that is full of laughter, love, and fun!
