Give Thanks!


The month of November gives us opportunity to participate in several special services:


November 4 -  For all the Saints, we will honor the impact of our family and friends who have been promoted to glory in the last year.


November 11 - For all the Veterans, we will honor those who have served our community and our nation in the military.


November 18 - For all the Thankful: "O give thanks to the Lord, for He is good and His steadfast love endures forever." This will be our theme in our Sunday morning worship service and our Community Thanksgiving Service.


November 25 - Hanging of the Greens, we will adorn our church with the decor and colors of Advent and Christmas.  We are reminded to adorn our lives with the righteousness of Christ.


See You Sunday!
