January Greetings!

January Greetings!

Hey! I wanted to get this out to invite you to come if you’re in our area and to pray regardless of where you are…

Sunday, December 31, 2017 at 5:00 pm: NY’s Food, Film, Fellowship & Lord’s Supper!

The Case for Christ is a 2017 film based on a true story. It follows an atheist journalist who looks to disprove his wife’s Christian faith. Here’s a great opportunity to invite friends to hear another clear presentation of the Gospel!


Starting January 7—New Adult Sunday School Class! Answers Bible Curriculum is a chronological Sunday school curriculum that covers the entire Bible. It answers key questions that confront us, and equips us with “faith proofs” to defend the Bible and to honor Christ as we apply Scripture. What a great way to start a new year—join us!

Thank you for your prayers for us this past month. I’ll include some pictures. Our International Christmas Banquet was well attended. Blessings abounded—church folks working hard, long and in unity; children and teens doing a great job singing, acting, and speaking; good attendance; several unsaved present; good outreach to our community. Our theme was “The Light of the World is Jesus!”

We also had a group caroling on quite a cold night. Several days later three families that we caroled to told me specifically that it was a blessing to them—especially the little children singing the praises of our Immanuel, God with us! Jesus loves the little children and so do we!


We have prayed quite a bit about our SVBC theme for the new year:

2018—Marvellous are Thy works;

and that my soul knoweth right well!

I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made:

marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well; Psalm 139:14


Thank you for praying with us and for us. We pray for you too!

Wishing you a New Year of spiritual growth.



 In Christ’s Love,

Tom & Wanda MacAvoy
