For my hope comes from Him.

God is our refuge.

PRAISE FOR THE WORD • 404 A HYMN OF JOY WE SING

THE FIRST READING •  Sandy Leslie, Elder
I CORINTHIANS 13
13 If I speak human or angelic languages but do not have love,
I am a sounding gong or a clanging cymbal.
2 If I have the gift of prophecy and understand all mysteries
and all knowledge, and if I have all faith so that I can move mountains
but do not have love, I am nothing.
3 And if I donate all my goods to feed the poor,
and if I give my body in order to boast but do not have love, I gain nothing.
4 Love is patient, love is kind. Love does not envy,
is not boastful, is not conceited, 5 does not act improperly,
is not selfish, is not provoked, and does not keep a record of wrongs.
6 Love finds no joy in unrighteousness but rejoices in the truth.
7 It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
8 Love never ends.
But as for prophecies, they will come to an end;
as for languages, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will come to an end.
9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
10 But when the perfect comes, the partial will come to an end.
11 When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child.
When I became a man, I put aside childish things.
12 For now we see indistinctly, as in a mirror, but then face to face.
Now I know in part, but then I will know fully, as I am fully known.
13 Now these three remain: faith, hope, and love.
But the greatest of these is love.

THE SECOND READING & LESSON • Pastor Rick Vale
FAITH • MARK 5:25-34
25 A woman suffering from bleeding for 12 years 26 had endured much under many doctors. She had spent everything she had and was not helped at all. On the contrary, she became worse. 27 Having heard about Jesus, she came behind Him in the crowd and touched His robe. 28 For she said, “If I can just touch His robes, I’ll be made well!” 29 Instantly her flow of blood ceased, and she sensed in her body that she was cured of her affliction.
30 At once Jesus realized in Himself that power had gone out from Him. He turned around in the crowd and said, “Who touched My robes?”
31 His disciples said to Him, “You see the crowd pressing against You, and You say, ‘Who touched Me?’”
32 So He was looking around to see who had done this. 33 Then the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came with fear and trembling, fell down before Him, and told Him the whole truth. 34 “Daughter,” He said to her, “your faith has made you well. Go in peace and be free from your affliction.”

CONGREGATIONAL PRAYER
The TIME OF PRAYER will end with the reciting of THE LORD’S PRAYER together.
Our Father, which art in heaven; Hallowed be Thy name,
Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil,
For Thine is the Kingdom, the power & the glory forever. Amen.

Dear Friends:
Words cannot express the gratitude for your support. With uncertainty, job loss, illness and more, you have stepped up to serve those in the direst need here at Operation Love. Your gifts have given food, clothing, and household items to over 6,000 families! 148 of these struggling families, single parents and those with fixed incomes have worked on budget plans and received financial intervention for a more stable future.
Your total gifts of $5,200.00 have helped feed 19,255 individuals through the food pantry. In 2022, 711 children received food, toiletries, and winter wear, and gifts for Christmas while 352 children received backpacks filled with their school supply list requests. Families in need also received 575 packages of diapers and hundreds of cleaning supplies through Operation Love throughout the year in support of providing their children a clean, stable home.
On behalf of the many families served through OLM, thank you for your faithfulness in giving. As we pray for a blessed 2023, we are grateful that friends like you will continue to help us reach out in love to provide help for today and hope for tomorrow through the ministries of Operation Love.
In Grace, Andrea Baker, Executive Director

Dear Friends at Central Christian,
Thank you for the love, prayers and support you have shown to The Christian Center in 2022. God has taken your gifts and used them to provide services to over two-thousand men, women and children in our community. In 2022 your investment was $5,200.
Here are a few highlights your gifts and donations provided:
• More than 117,00 hot nutritious meals served free of charge
• Over 21,000 bed nights where homeless men could not only receive a safe and warm place to sleep but also job training, spiritual development, accountability and counseling
• Over 44,000 articles of clothing, hygiene products and housewares distributed (77.8% benefiting women & children)
• 105,000 pounds of food sent to support local students, pantries and food boxes located in Anderson and Madison County
• Hundreds of showers, twelve tons of laundry and over a thousand life-affirming and life-changing interactions with struggling and unhoused neighbors through the Eleos Center.
Life-change is happening at TCC because of supporters like you. Your gifts made a difference.

Gratefully in His service,  Rob Spaulding, Executive Director
