10 Things to be Thankful for

This Holiday Season

Hi Everyone,


We always have something to be thankful for, no matter what circumstances we may be facing, because we have a Lord and Savior who is crazy about us and loves us so much that He was willing to die in our place. It’s a great reminder, not only to be thankful during the holiday season but, to be thankful every day of our lives!


I just wanted to share this list with you so you can share it with your kids. We could all come up with many more things to be thankful for. What a mighty God we serve!

As we enter into the holiday season, it’s easy to look at those around us who seem to have it all together and be reminded of what’s lacking in our own lives. This can make it difficult to find joy and to have a spirit of thanksgiving. For many, the holidays are a dark season of depression and self-loathing.


Think of those with no family to celebrate with, the homeless, the incarcerated, or the shut-ins. There are countless reasons why someone might find the holidays to be more depressing than exciting, and any of these reasons can easily lead to a critical spirit, depression, and in the most severe cases, suicidal thoughts.


All of us, even those in the best of circumstances, carry some sort of hurt or disappointment that can cause feelings of dissatisfaction with life and feeling as if there’s nothing to be thankful for. Hopefully, the following list will help remind us that we all need to look beyond our circumstances to what we can and should be most thankful for.

Hi Everyone,


I hope you’ve enjoyed the beautiful weather that we’ve been blessed with, this past week, and are looking forward to worshipping together on Sunday morning.


Just a couple of reminders:


1st: We’re raising money to buy chickens and roosters for families in need, in third world countries, until Nov. 24th. Fiona Lai will be sitting across from the elevator upstairs to collect the money before and after Kids’ Church.


2nd: The Bible memory verse for Sunday is: Luke 4:18–The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because He has anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor. Luke 4:18.


Can’t wait to see the kids on Sunday!

Christmas Chicken Project

I'm very thankful we raised $70 for the Christmas Chicken Project last Sunday, Nov. 3rd. I know we can raise more money, so the challenge is to raise $300 or more by the last Sunday of November. Every $25 raised will provide 2 chickens and 1 rooster for a family in need. Let's do this!! Lisa

Hi Everyone

Looking forward to seeing the kids on Sunday. Just wanted to share a couple things with you.


1st: Remember to set you clocks back one hour, on Saturday, night before you go to bed. We get an extra hour of sleep!!


2nd: This Sunday, we’ll be celebrating all the kids who had birthdays in October.


3rd: Instead of doing Samaritan Purse Shoeboxes this year, our church is raising money to help families, living in a third world country, receive 2 chickens and 1 rooster. Let’s see how much money we can raise in Kids’ Church. For every $5 that a child brings, they can put up a picture of a chicken around the elevator and sign their name. Fiona Lai will be sitting across from the elevator this Sunday, before and after Kids Church, to collect money.


4th: The Bible memory verse we’re memorizing this month is: The Spirit of the Lord is on me because He has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. Luke 4:18
