Tomorrow we will have a time of sharing and Thanksgiving. Please come ready to share things you are grateful to God for and people that you are grateful for and wish to encourage.

*The teens and middle school will be having their thanksgiving in the courtyard so let’s fellowship in the main room before and after midweek to give them their privacy.

Thank you to all who have contributed monetarily to the lunch on Friday for the family and close friends of Denzel when they return from the burial. We have decided to buy the food so the church members don’t need to bring anything. If you would still like to donate to this, there will be a collection jar in the big room where we will be having midweek tomorrow night. Thank you for helping to encourage and comfort the family through this very difficult time.
Details about  Denzel’s Celebration of Life and Love will be sent in a separate email shortly.
