We extend to you, our cherished friends and partners in Christ, our warmest wishes for a Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year.
Celebrating the Gift of Christ
Christmas is a time of reflection and celebration, commemorating the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. His arrival brought a profound message of love, hope, and redemption—a message that resonates deeply within the walls of Friendship Community.
With this message of Christ's redeeming love, we want to express our heartfelt appreciation for your steadfast support. Your prayers, kindness, and generosity have been a testament to that love, fostering a sense of community that uplifts and empowers those we serve.
Gratitude for Your Faithful Support
As we pause to reflect on the past year, we are profoundly grateful for your unwavering commitment to our mission. Your involvement has been a source of strength, enabling us to continue our work with Individuals with Intellectual Disability and Autism in the light of Christ's teachings. Together, we have created a community where each person is valued and cherished for the unique gifts bestowed upon us by our Creator.
A Prayerful Outlook for the New Year
As we welcome the New Year with hope and anticipation, we do so with a sense of purpose and commitment to the Christian values that guide us. May the coming year be filled with blessings, opportunities for growth, and moments of profound connection with God and one another.
In closing, we want to express our deepest gratitude for being a part of the Friendship Community family. Your faith-filled support has been such a blessing.
Wishing you a Christmas season filled with the joy of Christ's love and a New Year abundantly blessed with God's grace.
