Hello to our family and friends,
We are having an exciting event for family and friends this coming weekend. There will be delicious food, fun for the kids, and great fellowship with all. By the way, pass this around to others that you know that may be looking for a community that is not only caring about our church body, but are just as caring for those who may be looking for a spiritual home. We encourage you to pass this around to others you know on your job, school or next door to share in the fun gathering.
Here is the information, so mark your calendars! And for those who attend the morning services, stick around…..don’t miss out on food, fun and fellowship. Share the love and spread the word.
Please note that there is also an afternoon service that will start at 3:30 p.m.
Psalms 107:1-2 “O give thanks unto the Lord for He is good and His loving kindness is everlasting. Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom He has redeemed from the hand of the adversary.”
We are in a divinely appointed time of the Lord that God called “The Feast Of Tabernacles” or “Sukkot” in Hebrew. The Feast of Tabernacles means we are to observe this special time by remembering on all the goodness, the loving kindness and the mercies God has shown us, rejoice, give thanks and bring our First Fruits Offering (Deut.16:16-17). Three times a year, God commanded us do not come before Him empty handed. This a time to bless God and it is also a time God blesses his people. What a loving God!
In America, hundreds of years ago, the late President Abraham Lincoln invited all fellow citizens, in the U.S. and abroad in foreign lands, to set apart and observes the last Thursday in November as Thanksgiving Day. The late President Lincoln said he saw it fitting to give honor to the most beneficent one, our Father in Heaven for keeping the nation, protecting and blessing the nation in spite of the Civil War as well as in perseverance, with loss of life,etc. However, on God’s Calendar, He has chosen Oct. 8th -16th as an appointed time for special thanks to Him and we, who are both Jewish and Gentiles, especially those called by His name, would remember well to observe that it is He who has prospered us, protected us, provided for us, comforted us, encouraged us and so much more.
What has God done for you or your family this year? How has He kept you? What enemies did He move out of your way and make your foot stool? What are the victories He has given you and your family? I encourage you during this divinely appointed time that God has made that you and I give Him thanks, rejoice and praise His Holy Name! Let us, the redeemed of the Lord, say so! Remember, God inhabits the praise of His people and when the praises go up, He can not help to be but a blessing to us so we can be a blessing to others.
