Transforming through Gratitude – Thanksgiving Service
Thanksgiving reminds us each year to give thanks for our lives and our families. But what if we embraced gratitude as a year around practice? We might find that gratitude in good times and bad can transform our lives. Join us for our annual celebration of the harvest with our bread ceremony and an exploration of gratitude as a path to transformation.
Do you love to bake bread?
Please contact Grenda David (email@example.com) if you’d like to contribute to our harvest feast for this Sunday’s bread communion.
And please stay after service to join us in breaking bread together and enjoy spending time in fellowship!
