Pastor's Post for November



“Every time I think of you, I give thanks to my God.”
Philippians 1:3

Thankfulness is on the forefront of everyone’s mind as we approach this Thanksgiving season. Let me start by thanking you church on behalf of Donna and I for the kind Pastor Appreciation Day last Sunday. You always make us feel like the most blessed people in the world. Your heart for Jesus and others is seen in all you do. 

Do not let Satan sidetrack you by influencing you to think about all that has been lost or taken away. Remember, anything or anyone that has been taken by God, is not gone for good. Anything that has been taken that is not godly, you don’t need anyway. Live your life in a way that causes people to thank God for your influence in their life. I assure you that someone is watching you. Give thanks to God for all the people He has placed in your life! I know I do.

With A Thankful Heart,

Pastor James
