As we draw closer to the Holiday Season in which we celebrate a time of thankfulness just prior to remembering and appreciating the birth of our Savior, we thought it would be nice to observe the Thanksgiving season in a unique way.
During the month of November we will dedicate space on one of our walls in the church foyer as a “Wall of Thanks”. On this space we will hang paper, and we are asking each and every person who would like to share a thought, testimonial or drawing of what they are thankful for by using the supplied colored pencils to share.

On Wednesday, November 21 at 5:30 in the evening, we will be gathering together as a church for our annual Thanksgiving Eve service, and we would love to have you join us, and bring family and friends to this special service celebrating our many blessings.
Thanksgiving has been celebrated as an official national holiday in the US since 1864, when, during the American Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national day of “Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens,” to be celebrated on the last Thursday in November.

Dear Friends and Family of FCC, Sunday, November 19th is our annual all-church Thanksgiving Service and on behalf of the entire pastoral staff, I would like to invite you to join us. Thanksgiving is a time of celebration, recognizing the gifts that we have been given throughout the year.
As a church, we will gather together to honor these blessings, and to look forward into the new year with anticipation at what the Lord is going to do.
Some of you who were brought up in the church may remember something called “testimony service”. This was a special time when people would get up to declare the works of the Lord in their own lives. This had a couple of purposes as it served to remind them and “cement” that in their hearts that God cares for them personally, but it also served as a way to inspire and bless others who might have been going through much of the same thing at that point in life.

Once again we are nearing the time of year in which we make an extra effort to show our appreciation to the Lord for His tremendous blessings and provision in our lives. What a blessed holiday Thanksgiving is!
Perhaps there’s a time in your life you can think back to when things were a bit of a challenge financially. You wondered where the money for the next meal was going to come from, or quite possibly gas money was in short supply because of the need to use it for the more pressing need of food for your family.
