Merry Christmas. Happy Birthday Jesus!
It was like a Christmas miracle. Not "like" one... it actually was one. At 3:00p.m. yesterday, the City of Kyle granted the Kyle United Methodist Church a permit to occupy the New Life Center for Christmas Eve service.
This has been a long process (since about August 2007)... filled with many problems along the way, but as Pastor Harold (Dailey) said last night at the service, he received a calling and God told him they would need the space for his children..so he worked tirelessly (as did an amazing crew of contractors) to make it happen. It did.
As it turns out, there were 146 (I think that was the count) at Christmas Eve Service. Our sanctuary holds about 100. So, God was right....(that's a given) and we did need the space.
Here's some shots from the first service, a wonderful, heartfelt Christmas Eve service, at the Kyle United Methodist Church's New Life Center.
Consider these #18 in my series of the building of the New Life Center. You can track back my photos of the building by visiting #17 at this link - http://kyledailyphoto.blogspot.com/2008/11/kyle-united-methodist-church-update.html
Here's the photo taken in August 2007, just before the ground breaking for the New Life Center.
Merry Christmas everybody.
