Dear Church Family,
We celebrated Christ the King Sunday this morning with twenty of us worshipping in person. It was a joy to have both of Donnie's daughters with us at Table of Grace today. Mary Alice shared the announcements, led our call to worship, and read two scripture passages. She read the familiar verses from Psalm 100, "Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise. Give thanks to him, bless his name. For the Lord is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations." (vs 4-5). The second reading was from 2 Corinthians: 4:15, "All of this is for your benefit. And as God's grace reaches more and more people, there will be great thanksgiving, and God will receive more and more glory." Donnie's message on thankfulness can be viewed on YouTube using the following link:
Just before the benediction, Phyllis shared a video showing the closing moments from the movie, "Schindler's List". Oskar Schindler, a German industrialist, saved the lives of 1100 Jews during the Holocost by employing them in his factories. As he is recognized for his heroism, he laments that he could have done so much more. Donnie urged us to take advantage of every opportunity God places before us to serve his people.
Donnie asked for prayers for our regular organist who was unable to be with us this morning and offered thanks to another member for serving as accompanist during worship. Donnie offered thanks for those who serve out their giftedness.
Donnie asked for continued prayers for the little girl who is still undergoing intensive chemo-therapy.
Angie thanked everyone for prayers for her friend's brother who was injured in a motorcycle accident. He is improving. Please pray for her sister, whose cancer has returned and spread.
Rick asked for prayers for the Pastor's medical appointment tomorrow. Please pray for answers and an encouraging outcome for him. Rick asked for traveling mercies for everyone traveling for Thanksgiving.
Nancy asked for prayers for her nephew, who will visit Cleveland Clinic this Wednesday. Please pray that he gets encouraging answers.
Cathy asked for prayers of comfort for the family of a person, who passed away from esophageal cancer. She made afghans for several of our bedroom makeovers.
Barb asked for traveling mercies for her daughter and friend, who will return to Erie on Wednesday for Thanksgiving. Sadly, her friend's cousin has been diagnosed with COVID and he will not be able to visit with family.
Mary Alice asked for prayers of comfort and healing for her friend whose biopsy revealed breast cancer.
Please pray for all those experiencing relationship problems.
Please pray for protection for all those dealing with COVID19.
There will be NO bible study this week because of Thanksgiving travel and preparations.
Next Sunday is the first Sunday in Advent. We will decorate the sanctuary after bible study on Dec. 2.
After worship today, we prepared bag lunches and hot soup for guests at the Upper Room. Thanks to our
coordinator for organizing this important ministry.
Happy Thanksgiving! Have a blessed week! Brenda
