A Thanksgiving Practice

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. A time where we gather around the table, fill our plates and bellies, and give thanks for the abundance in our lives. Our challenge for tomorrow is simple: practice radical gratitude. Throughout the day, remind yourself of the things you are thankful for – both big and small. And offer a prayer of thanks to God for them in your life. God calls us to be thankful – and one of the best ways to do that is to pay attention to the good things around us.
We’re especially thankful for you!
Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. – 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Advent Missions Night

This Sunday, we are hosting our annual Advent Missions Night during NightLife! Join us from 5:00-7:00 in the Youth Area as we wrap gifts for Wesley House kids & grannies, write notes to Church Street homebound members, and make care packages for the staff of the ER and PICU floors at Children’s Hospital.

We’re going to have a great time of fellowship and mission as we kick off the Christmas season focused on what matters most!
