Thankfulness

"Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful until him, and bless his name." Psalm 100:4

Freedom to worship as they choose brought people to America. Freedom to worship as we choose sustains our country today.

In 1620 the Pilgrims sailed to America in search of freedom to worship God in their own way. The Pilgrims' first winter was very hard, but in the spring, Native Americans taught them how to grow corn and catch fish. After a successful harvest, the Pilgrims invited the Indians to join in a feast. Today we think of their celebration as the First Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving Day and every day, let's thank God for our families and our freedom. Praise him for his goodness, mercy and love.

A Prayer of Thanksgiving

O thou Creator of all things, we lift up our hearts
In gratitude for this day's happiness--
For the mere joy of living;
For the sweet peace of the country
And the pleasant bustle of the town;
For all things bright and beautiful;
For a time to play when the day's work is done
And for health and a glad heart to enjoy it.
And above all, we thank thee for the sure hope and promise of
an endless life which thou hast given us in Jesus Christ, Our Lord.
Amen.

Glory to God for the eleven souls we have seen accept Christ Jesus this month. Nine of them were baptized Sunday. We serve a Mighty Lord!!
