From The Minister’s Desk 
“Let us come before him with thanksgiving…”
 Psalm 95:2
 
November is Thanksgiving month! When we spend some time thinking about it, we begin to understand that everything that we have is from God. Life, health, family, the Church — it is all from God, and it causes us to be thankful! I would encourage you to spend some time thinking and talking to God about the things you are thankful for, and thank Him.
This month also ends Daylight Savings Time. On the November 3 we will turn our clocks back one hour and be back on Standard time. Don’t forget, it can catch you by surprise.
All of we preachers here on staff want to say, “Thank you for all of your gifts and kind words that you shared because of Minister Appreciation Month!” The cards and public presentation was a great gesture of love on your part. Thank you, and we love all of you!
This month we will conduct our Annual Meeting on November 17. This is a time when we get together after worship and vote on leadership candidates for the coming year. That includes new elders, trustees, and a chairman of the congregation candidate will be on the ballot. Hope you will be here to share in leadership.
And lastly, we received a great gift for new carpet and flooring for the entire church building! What a great gift to benefit the whole church body!!! Thank you to the anonymous donor– to God be the glory.
 
Because of Him,
