Happy Thanksgiving! We are so blessed by the Lord… He is Good! It goes without saying that we have seen the Lord at work through Grace Church. In a day when many are looking for hope and peace, we have it! Thankful hearts are peaceful hearts! Thankful people take time to consider the goodness of God! Sometimes we get so busy we run right past the blessings of God and miss out on what He has for us! Join me and let’s knit our hearts together and bless the Lord for His goodness! Take a few minutes and ponder the truth of Psalm 95:1-3, “O come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation. Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto Him with psalms. For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods.” David knew how to be thankful, let’s join him!

An Uptown Christmas is less than a month away! Let’s pray for our Grace Church Choir and work daily to see that Greenville hears the Christmas story from a church that cares about our city! You have heard me say it before, no one has ever presented an outdoor Christmas event like An Uptown Christmas. I am excited to be a part of something new and fresh. Do your part, by praying, inviting your friends and by attending at least one presentation at the Town Commons if not both! The Lord wants to use us… let Him use you anyway He chooses! Let’s bring “Glad tidings of great joy” to our community and let’s do it together!

In closing, today I have received notes from Dr. Tom Bartlett and Carmen Moyer about ENGAGE! My heart was moved when I thought about how big our God is and how much He wants to use us. Tom and Carmen shared how much they were blessed and refreshed in their work for the Lord. Tom’s letter referenced his church plant near Washington and Carmen is moving forward in her desire to join the International Mission Board as a missionary! TOGETHER we are making a difference. If at all possible, please add to your missions giving. You will not regret it!

Happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy your holiday and I will see you Sunday!

Serving Jesus Together!
