I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day
December 22, 2020
Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
1. Do you struggle with feeling hopeless? If so, know that the God of hope desires to replace that depressing emotion with an assured confidence. During this Christmas season, I encourage you to ponder the God of Hope who sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to give us hope for an eternal future with Him in His Kingdom.
2. Do you often struggle with feeling empty? If so, know that the God of hope desires to fill your emptiness with the sustaining qualities of joy and peace. During this Christmas season, I encourage you to ponder these astonishing themes that are profoundly connected to faith in the person of Jesus Christ?
3. Do you often struggle with feeling mediocre? If so, know that the God of hope desires so much more for His children. During this Christmas season, I encourage you to ponder and experience the overflowing abundance of hope available through the power of God's Holy Spirit.
First, I want to thank you for being part of our online community. Second, I wanted to ask if you would consider supporting the work of CBF through our online giving portal? We know that many of you are struggling financially. We would never ask anyone in such a situation to give to us rather than care for their family. We believe that our calling is to steward God's gifts well. Asking someone to neglect their obligation to family in the name of financial giving would be irresponsible on our part. Having said this we also acknowledge that many of us have been blessed by God even in this time of hardship. We are asking that those who have been given much would consider helping to support the work God is doing through our church. We are a small community of believer and given our size this time of hardship will continue to affect the work that we are able to produce in the coming weeks and possibly months. We can assure you that anything given to CBF will be used to glorify God in the Naples area. Would you please consider partnering with us in the work of the Gospel? If you feel God leading you to partner with us, just click on the "Support CBF Naples" button below. When you get there scroll down and you will find a "donate" button.

7 Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
