Good morning! I trust Christmas was a blessed day for you. Today will be a good day also as we gather in the Name of the Lord!

We finish our series entitled “At Christmastime” this morning. I’m going to explore a topic that has affected most people in 2020 and that is discouragement. While Christmas was a time of great joy when Jesus was born, we also find heartache and suffering surrounding Jesus’ birth. How do we deal with discouragement? I pray for the Holy Spirit to give us wisdom and encouragement this morning.

We have a lot on our plates for 2021. It is going to be a good year for West Haven. I hope you will pray with us, that God will give us wisdom and knowledge and understanding to lead His church in a way that will bring Him glory!

Please know that we are praying for you as we enter this new year. 2020 was a year of rapidly accelerating change. I am grateful that God’s word that assures us (Heb. 13:8) that “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.”
