<h1>The Women of the Henning Church of God along with guests met in the church fellowship hall for their Christmas celebration and dinner on Dec. 5. Sam Zicafoose sang, \u201cI\u2019m Dreaming of a White Christmas.\u201d<\/h1>\r\nCarole Spencer, president, opened the meeting and August Hefner led in prayer. Dyan Hefner, spiritual life direction, gave the devotion, \u201cThe Real Meaning of Christmas,\u201d with scripture reference from Luke 2:14-19. Many people think the real meaning of Christmas is gifts under the tree, cards, stockings and Santa Claus. However, this time of year is a time of love, healing and celebration of Christ\u2019s birth even if someone had experienced sorrow at this time of year. Christmas is a great event. God sent His one and only son to die for us so we could be saved. We can be truly happy at Christmas because we know we are His children and can look to God for all our needs to be met.\r\n\r\nAll reports were dismissed.\r\n\r\nJamie Harvey thanked everyone for their help on the community Thanksgiving dinner. The food left over was donated to the Family Refuge Center. The tied with heartstrings apron project was a success.
