A Prayer for Thanksgiving

Heavenly Father, on Thanksgiving Day, we bow our hearts to You and pray. We give You thanks for all You've done, especially for the gift of Jesus, Your Son. For beauty in nature, Your glory we see, for joy and health, friends, and family. For daily provision, Your mercy and care, these are the blessings You graciously share. So today we offer this response of praise with a promise to follow You all of our days.

Good News, Great Joy

Thank you shoebox shoppers. Because of your kindness and generosity, 67 more children will receive a gift, perhaps, for the very first time.

Franklin Graham, president of Samaritan’s Purse writes “I am deeply grateful for your heart for packing Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes for children in need. All over the world, these gift-filled boxes become tools for local churches
to share God’s love and the Gospel of Jesus Christ”.

…and that, dear friends, is the greatest gift of all!

Chris and Sarah
