Our annual Christmas Bazaar and Bake Sale will be held Friday and Saturday November 17th & 18th from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm at the church. This is your chance to update your Christmas decorations and enjoy some great Christmas treats!
The Thursday morning Bible study will resume on September 14 at 9:30 a.m. in the Bailey Room. Pat Davis will be leading the study. We will finish Friends of Jesus and decide on a new study. Please join us!
“If you give thanks when you wake up in the morning, you will be happy for the rest of the day. If you give thanks before you go to bed, you will sleep well. If you begin with thanksgiving on the first day of the New Year, the whole year will be different. Little Thanks begets Big Thanks. When we thank more, we will live a happier life!”
I am thankful for all of our volunteers who worked so hard for our Bazaar, Bake Sale, and Thrift Shop. I thank God for giving us nice weather. I thank God for our church members, Eagles Club, Lion’s Club, other Methodist Congregations and the Florida Conference who have supported our church. I thank God for my family and all my friends who love me and pray for me. Most of all, I thank God for the gift of salvation through Jesus Christ. Although I can go on and on if I try to mention all the things that I am grateful for, but I will stop here since we have a limited time.
I also want you to count your own blessings and give thanks to God, especially in this month of November. This morning, I’d like to share God’s message with you through a sermon entitled, “Always Give Thanks!” And we are going to explore the life of Daniel. I am sure that many of us heard the story of Daniel in the lion’s den before. As a matter of fact, there is a painting of Daniel taming the lions that hangs on the wall of many Sunday school classrooms. We learned how God saved Daniel from becoming the main course of at dinner in the lions’ den. But there are a lot more for us to learn from this story!
