Give Thanks ~ Together!

Give Thanks ~ Together!

O give thanks to the LORD, for he is good;
    for his steadfast love endures forever. 1 Chronicles 16:34

We have entered the season of thanksgiving. The scriptures tell us again and again to give thanks at all times, in all places. We give thanks to God because God is good. We give thanks to God because God is righteous and just. We give thanks to God because of God’s care, concern and protection of us. I invite you to look for an opportunity each day to give thanks to God. (This is a good practice all the time, but especially as we approach the Thanksgiving holiday).

Giving thanks is central to the Christian faith. Giving thanks to God is something all Christians do naturally and joyfully. Therefore, the Thanksgiving season is the perfect time to come together with other brothers and sisters in Christ. Rincon UMC is honored to host the Community Thanksgiving Service on Sunday, November 23 at 6pm. This special service is being planned in partnership with Faith Presbyterian, St. Luke’s Episcopal, Goshen UMC and Gateway Community Church. The service promises to be a meaningful opportunity to worship God. We will have some stringed instruments playing as well as the handbells.

Father David Rose will preach. We will also all fellowship together afterwards at a reception. We need help offering our guests a warm welcome. Please let us know if you are willing to serve as a greeter or help with the reception. I hope to see you there. Let’s give thanks – together!
