Wall of Gratitude

While there are certainly times of trial in our lives, we have much for which to be thankful! During this season of Thanksgiving, we will have a "Wall of Gratitude" at church. There will be self-sticking leaves and Sharpie markers to write down and share the blessings that God has given you. Please take the time to write down a thing or two (or ten!) for which you are thankful and post it on the Wall of Gratitude. What an encouragement it is to share about His goodness with each other!

Psalm 107:1 Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever! Let the redeemed of the Lord say so!

Attention All Parents

Parents, please talk with your children about not playing in the new landscaping. The pond and fountain are almost irresistible for children! But the integrity of the structures can be easily damaged. Thanks for your help!

Also, please work with your children to be sure all toys, pillows, food, drinks etc. are cleaned up and put away properly each week. We are blessed to have our own church building -- please help us shine the light of Christ by caring for the building with which He has blessed us.
