Is it officially time to decorate for Christmas? The pumpkin spice has been put away, and the peppermint is being pulled out, at least at Starbucks. Soon, Thanksgiving will be upon us, and before you know it, we will celebrate Christmas Eve together. There is so much to be thankful for this season. Our theme for this Christmas is “Hope is Born.” So many families are on the brink of despair, and we want to show them that Jesus is the hope they need.
If you haven’t heard, we had a great time at our Trunk or Treat. We had twenty-three trunks, along with a bounce house and games. We had one hundred and fifty families attend the event, which would give us an attendance of over five hundred people, including volunteers. That was way beyond our expectations. We are so thankful for all the hard work the volunteers put into their decorations and greeting the people, as well as those who donated candy. It was all needed. We could tell the families were grateful we had put on the event. Many asked questions about the church, so pray that we see some show up on Sunday.
I hope you will mark your calendars and plan to join us for our church Thanksgiving dinner and stocking stuffing party. It’s Sunday night, November 19th, at 5:30 PM. Every family needs to bring a Thanksgiving-themed side dish and dessert. You can register here. We are also looking for four people to cook, BBQ, or fry a turkey for us that night. We can provide the turkey. We just need someone to prepare it. If you can, reply to this email and let me know.
That’s all for now. This Sunday, we are looking at Hebrews 10:1-18. See you then.
