“Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.” I Thessalonians 5:16-18

Reminder there will be no services this evening. So, today, we’re asking for what are you thankful? And, we’re also praying. Praying for all of you traveling, for the sick, for all who struggle during the holidays, for all who find it difficult to be with family, praying for those who are grieving, praying for the hungry, praying for gospel conversations, praying for all people and all situations. We’re thankful God listens as we pray, meets us where we are and loves us sympathetically.

Church family - if you would be so kind to donate blankets for Ed and Sandi Helveston to take to Panama City next weekend that would be a huge blessing. They are expecting well below average temperatures this winter and as you know many lost everything in the hurricane. If you can donate please take them to the church office by Friday morning.

Did you forget your shoeboxes or do you want to do more??? There’s still time! We will be taking all the boxes to the drop off location Nov. 19th. We need all boxes by 8am that day.
Need a reason to pack? Watch as children receive Good News and Great Joy in Mexico!
