On Sunday 17th November we will be sharing together in a Thanks Giving service. Many of us can remember Harvest Thanksgiving festivals in the past with wheat sheaves and piles of produce brought to the front of the church. Even in the city!
They were great celebrations of the abundance of God’s provision. This year we will revisit Thanks Giving but we are not asking you to bring food and produce. Instead we are asking members to bring gifts of money that will be used to secure ongoing ministry within the life of our church. You will each receive an envelope in which you provide either a cash or cheque gift, or include a slip indicating that you have made a direct deposit into our bank account. We have also established an online service where you can make contributions through your credit card. Details for these will be provided on the envelope.
We have invited Wendy Perkins, who has been our presbytery support person, and who is known to many in the congregation, to preach and encourage us to think about gratitude and giving with God’s abundance.
Please consider how you can support your church with a special gift on this Sunday.
