Session Update


The Session is looking forward to an exciting month of anticipating and celebrating the birth of our Savior with some very special events. The opportunity to host the Behold the Lamb concert again (December 14) will bring 1,000 people – Southwood members, friends, and neighbors – to enjoy this beautiful musical retelling of the story of Jesus. Pray with us for the Spirit’s work through this evening. Also remember the schedule for Christmas Eve, which falls on a Sunday this year. Our regular Sunday worship service with a children’s moment will celebrate the incarnation at 10:30am, and we will gather again at 5:30 and 7:00pm for our candlelight communion worship services. Make plans to join us with your families for these special celebrations as well.

As we have shared with you via congregational meeting and a recent “giving letter,” our budget needs are still significant as we approach the close of 2017 and plan for a 2018 budget with a fully staffed church. Please join us in prayer for God’s provision toward the end of this year. Not only do we love to see income exceed expenses for a given year, but we also look forward to opportunities to give additional money to our local and global mission partners as giving allows. So, please pray and also consider giving to the church and God’s kingdom work through Southwood and our partners at the end of this year.

As always, if you have particular questions regarding giving, please contact our church administrator, Janice Crowson (.(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)). The Finance Committee, Diaconate, and Session are currently wrestling through budget plans for 2018 and considering how we can use all our material resources in the best way for the sake of the kingdom. As always, plans for the next year’s budget will be discussed at the Annual Congregational Meeting the first Sunday of February.
