A Time for Thanks – Sunday, November 29
I AM STRUCK by Paul’s instructions for us in Philippians 4:6. It is good to keep in mind that these instructions come to anxious people. Do not be anxious about anything, Paul says.
This has been an anxious year. That goes without saying. In fact, as the year has progressed, each passing difficulty has been received with the knowing shrug of the shoulders that simply says, “Well that is 2020 for you.”
And yet, despite the presence of these anxious moments, Paul suggests that a spirit of thanksgiving should always mark us. There is still much for us to be thankful for. So, Paul says, “but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.”
Surely, one thing to be thankful for is that we can turn to God when we are anxious. That is just one of many things we can be thankful for.
What are you thankful for amid this anxious year? We want to hear it!
Typically, we celebrate Thanksgiving as a church family through our annual Thanksgiving Fest. It is a time of thanks and a time of fellowship around sandwiches and pie. But because of COVID, like so many other things, we can’t do what is normal to us.
But we still want to create space for us as a church family to give thanks to what God is doing in our lives.
Thanksgiving Sunday at WEFC is Sunday, November 29 during the Sunday morning worship service at 10:00 am.
We want to hear from you!
If you are physically present at the church, there will be opportunity for you to share a word of thanks during the service. So, come prepared to share.
If you are virtually present, we would invite you to share your word of thanks as well. Here is how you can share your word of thanks.
- You can submit your word of thanks through a 20-second video and send it to the church office and we will play it during the service.
- You can write us a brief word of thanks and we will share it as well. If you choose to write a brief word of thanks, please send us a picture of you and your family (please format your picture as landscape) that we can post with your testimony of thanks.
“Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever.”
