Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:


We are delighted to announce a Christmas Gathering to be held at Marble Falls FUMC on December 7th, at 7:00 p.m.  We have received approval from the church to gather for the evening to conduct a Christmas music service.  The church has also agreed to let us broadcast the service via their live streaming capabilities.  We will be observing the Corona virus protocols of social distancing and the wearing of masks throughout the service while in the building.  Regrettably, due to Covid-19 protocols, we will not be able to host a potluck dinner.


We will be providing the streaming link in a subsequent email so be on the lookout for our next letter.  In the meantime, know that we will your include prayer concerns as part of the service.  Please forward your concerns to Tom Ruiz at the email address listed below so we can address them during the service.  This is especially true for those of you who will be participating via the streaming link.


A very special thanks to Pastor Jason, Mike McKeown and the band members, and to the church council of MF-FUMC for their contributions in making this event happen.


May the peace of our Lord, Jesus Christ, be with all of you throughout the days to come.  De Colores!


As ever, I remain your humble servant,



Tom Ruiz
