Warm and heartfelt Christmas greetings from all of us at Spring Hills Church! Our prayers are fervently with you, wishing you an abundantly merry Christmas filled with the unwavering gifts of hope, love, joy, and peace during this blessed season.
Today, we extend something truly extraordinary, something tailor-made for you. We understand how overwhelming life can get, especially amidst the hustle and bustle of this season. Sometimes, it feels challenging to connect with the serene and exquisite streams of God’s peace. Isn't it ironic, given that the season revolves around just that?
My beloved wife, Leah Meyer, and I desire to present to you a prayerful meditation. It's an opportunity for you to carve out a precious few minutes, solely dedicated to you and God—no distractions, just a serene journey into the grace, mercy, love, and peace of Christ, as beautifully depicted in Psalm 23 and John 10.
God's blessings upon our cherished family! Know this: our church envelops you with love. Our Pastors hold you close in their hearts. While you immerse yourself in this prayerful meditation, hold onto the truth that you are embraced here, cherished deeply, and your presence matters more than words can express.While you enjoy this prayer meditation please keep in your heart that you are welcomed here, you are loved, and you matter.
For His Kingdom,
Pastor Joshua Meyer & Leah Meyer

Psalm 23: 1-4
1 The Lord is my shepherd; I have all that I need. 2 He lets me rest in green meadows; he leads me beside peaceful streams. 3 He renews my strength. He guides me along right paths, bringing honor to his name. 4 Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, or you are close beside me. Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me.
John 10: 2-7 & 14-16
2 But the one who enters through the gate is the shepherd of the sheep. 3 The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep recognize his voice and come to him. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. 4 After he has gathered his own flock, he walks ahead of them, and they follow him because they know his voice. 5 They won’t follow a stranger; they will run from him because they don’t know his voice.” 6 Those who heard Jesus use this illustration didn’t understand what he meant, 7 so he explained it to them: “I tell you the truth, I am the gate for the sheep… 14 “I am the good shepherd; I know my own sheep, and they know me, 15 just as my Father knows me and I know the Father. So, I sacrifice my life for the sheep. 16 I have other sheep too, that are not in this sheepfold. I must bring them also. They will listen to my voice, and there will be one flock with one shepherd.
