We’re excited to celebrate Thanksgiving with you this week! Our Thanksgiving dinner starts at 4:30pm this Sunday, the 20th. We’ll provide turkey – bring a side or dessert to share! This is a great opportunity to spend time with our community and get to know each other better (not to mention eat a lot of really good food).
This Sunday is also the deadline for Thanksgiving meal box donations. So far, we have 7 of our 8 pledged boxes covered! Please don’t let that stop you from giving if you were planning to, though – Fircrest has many families in need, and there are well over 8 families who can benefit from your support this holiday.
We’ve been talking about gratitude for the last couple of weeks, and I’m filled with gratitude to belong to a church that loves and gives so generously and enjoys spending time in community. We saw that most recently at Neewollah, where dozens of volunteers helped the 600+ kids who visited, and at Marriage Retreat, where 20 couples spent a weekend learning how to be better partners in life. You rise to meet every need, whether it’s through giving resources or spending time in service, and I’m grateful for your willingness to pour out God’s love on others.
