Dear Church Family,


The month of November is known for giving thanks and being grateful. Take a moment out of the day to thank God for the good health we still have. As we get older, it is easy to gripe at the health we are losing such as our hair, skin tone, firmness, strength, energy… we can go on and on. It is best to be thankful for what we still have. This will be different for all of us. Some have hearing, some sight, some good feet, some strong hands, and some still have sharp minds. Together we are one body strong in Christ ready to conquer any challenge. I am personally thankful to all of you for spiritual support, laughter, and friendship. This offers me more than physical health. Spiritual and emotional well-being can carry us when and where our bodies cannot. 

Happy Thanksgiving!
