Hi everyone!

It’s Giving Tuesday! It’s the day non-profits ask for money after you have already exhausted your checking account on Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday. But we have a special request, better than all the other requests.

The carpet in the Sanctuary is not pretty. We move area rugs around to try to conceal this, but you know what we’re doing.

The good news is we have planned to address this. We have estimates that place the cost of replacement at $22,000. And we have raised, get this, over $17,000 towards replacement!

Can you help us get over the top? We have a site up and running for online giving. Go here
https://tithe.ly/give?c=161637 to give today!

Be sure to select Renewal Capital Campaign from the “give” section.

Thank you everyone for taking care of our church building and ensuring it will be around for generations to come.

Being grateful for the present makes us able to fully experience life’s best moments.

American Cleric Henry Ward Beecher once said, “No matter what looms ahead, if you can eat today, enjoy the sunlight today, mix good cheer with friends today, enjoy it and bless God for it. Do not look back on happiness- or dream of it in the future. you are only sure of today; do not let yourself be cheated out of it.
Regretting the past and dreading the future: There are no more two sure ways to destroy today’s blessings.so instead say to yourself:
“This is the day that the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it.” Holy Bible, Psalm 119:24
Blessings, Pastor Penny Magee
excerpt from: Daily Devotions for Seniors by Christine Dallman

What Are You Thankful For?

Studies have shown that people who practice gratitude report experiencing more joy, express more compassion and generosity, and are even less likely to get sick. But how do you nurture a spirit of thankfulness when busy-ness distracts you from the joy around you?

Remember our,” I thank God for…” moleskin notebooks? Did you get one? It’s not too late. Stop by the church and nourish your thankfulness to God! Here are a few of the things that I’m thankful for that happened yesterday at church.

I Thank God For…

I thank God for the family that appeared after worship to drop off coats for the homeless. They had seen on our church sign that we are accepting winter coats for the homeless and I quickly explained that the Kingdom Warriors ministry serves the about 200 homeless each Monday. Cheryl agreed to deliver the coats right away to Betty Richard so that tonight some people will be warm.

I thank God for the 160 cans we’ve collected to go to the food pantry and the for the church member who challenged us with their match of 50 cans. Some people won’t be hungry now.

I’m thankful for Dennis’s beautiful music. He can play anything! Music really helps us worship God! We had the privilege of worshiping Almighty God!

I’m thankful for my husband who prepared a good Bible study for the men’s prayer group and for Randy who cooked the breakfast. We are thankful for godly men.

What are you thankful for? E-mail me and/or the whole church and let us know.

Joy in gratitude to Christ,  Pastor Penny
