1) UPGRADED MESSAGE BOARDS
Webmasters with the Gold, Silver, and Bronze package - just in case you missed the message sent out Dec 9, we upgraded all of the phpBB message boards to the latest version - 2.0.11 - to close a security hole. There shouldn't be any noticeable differences in the way your message boards operate. If you do notice any strange behavior please let us know.

2) IS CHRISTMAS COMING TO YOUR WEBSITE?
Only 10 days remain before Christmas. If you're like most people you're up to your ears in shopping, parties, decorations, cards, and other activities. One of the biggest challenges we face as Christians is trying to keep our focus during the Christmas season on Christ. As a webmaster, you can help others do this by updating your website with a poem, inspirational story, or personal thought that helps remind your visitors of the true meaning of Christmas. You can also use the e-newsletter function to send a message to people who may be too busy to remember to visit your site. If you have any other ideas, please share them in our Website Service Questions and Comments forum.

3) CHRISTMAS THOUGHTS
This being the final newsletter of the year, all of us at OurChurch.Com would like to express our deepest thanks to you for allowing us to serve as your website host. We are grateful to God that he blessed us in 2004 and entrusted us with the websites of more ministries than ever before. We look forward to the new year when we'll be announcing some exciting new services that will help further your ministries even more.

We love the personal relationships we have been able to develop over the years with many of you and the sense of community that exists at OurChurch.Com. We truly feel like ministry partners with you, and so we wish you and your ministry teams and your families a blessed Christmas.

More than 2000 years ago a helpless baby was born in a humble stable and noticed by just a few poor shepherds. But this baby grew up to change the course of human history and our eternal destinies. Sometimes we also feel small and helpless, but we too were placed where we are today by a God who loves us more than we can comprehend. Our contribution to this world is not determined by our wealth or fame or social status, but simply by our willingness to say, "Yes" to a God who loves us so much he could not say, "No" to sacrificing his only Son to save us.

In His Service,
OurChurch.Com
