Fifteen Points on Thanksgiving!

Based on the sermon yesterday (11-21-10) here are the fifteen points concerning Thanksgiving.

Why Thanks:

Thanks is an expression of confidence in God – He is in control

Thanks raises your perspective above the circumstance

Thanks changes your focus from the bad to the good

Thanks starts an attitude change process in your heart and mind

Thanks creates hope when desperation seems to prevail

Thanks reminds us of God’s goodness and His provision

Thanks helps us prioritize our wants and desires

Thanks is a command – the Lord is a rewarder of those who are obedient

Thanks is His will – that we should be victorious in all situations

Thanks is the melody of the heart song of gratitude

Thanks is a Victory stand over pervasive Greed

Thanks removes personal satisfaction of prideful accumulation

Thanks results in joy for the smallest things as well as the greatest

Thanks infects others with an attitude of spiritual potential

Thanks promotes a spiritual reaction in the lives of others

Holiday Schedule Notes

This Sunday we’ll start a holiday schedule which will return us to one worship service and one Sunday School for the remainder of the year.  As placed in the bulletin this past Sunday, (and found online in pdf) all the classes have been assigned and provisions have been made for a number of our classes to meet at Providence Christian Academy.  Those groups and classes are: The Youth Department (which will meet in the PCA front building), the Whitefield/Morgan class, the Twenty-Something Class, and the George Class, and the Singles (these groups will meet in the PCA main building).  For the classes meeting at PCA, our Youth Pastor, Mark Smith will be opening the building at approximately 8:30 am.

All Sunday School classes will begin at 9:00 am followed by the thirty minute fellowship time and then 10:30 am worship. 

We look forward to a full and fruitful Sunday.
