VOLUME 31, ISSUE 42, NOVEMBER 20, 2022


A big "thank you" to the Wickliffe Family and associates at Wickliffe Insurance for delivering our Operation Christmas Child boxes to Green Pond UMC on Wednesday.
C.S. Lewis once wrote, "We ought to give thanks for all fortune: if it is 'good,' because it is good, if 'bad' because it works in us patience, humility and the contempt of this world and the hope of our eternal country." Friends, many of you are going through challenges now, but do not despair. God is at work. And so let us be a thankful people in all things knowing that Christ has lived and died to provide us with an eternal home with Him. 

Don't wait until Thanksgiving to give God thanks. Join us for two services on Sunday as we worship our great God. The Sunday evening service begins at 5:30 p.m. It will include a testimony of thanks from one of our members, and we will join one another at the Lord's table for communion. I am looking forward to both of those services of worship with you.

"It is good to give thanks to the LORD, to sing praise to your name, O Might High; to declare your steadfast love in the morning, and your faithfulness by night" (Psalm 92:1-2)

Grace be with you.
Our nursery continues to grow, and we need your help to care for our youngest members and point them to Jesus! Tammy Teal is helping with signups, and she'd love to hear from you and schedule you for nursery. Click here to send her an email or give her a call at 541.274.1158. Thank you for serving in the nursery.
