New Life Community Church held a graceful thanksgiving service on Nov 25, 2016. Pastor Cindy delivered the message from "John 3:16 and 1Thess 5:18." 9 adults and 3 kids enjoyed the service and turkey joyfully.
The service started at 5pm with praise. The message led everyone to think about the love of God. We are sinners but God sent his one and only Son to save us from sin so that we can get eternal life. How thankful we should be! This is the greatest blessing for everyone. The preacher exhorted everyone to seek God's love daily and gave thanks and praise to the Lord everyday.
After service, they shared what they were thankful for in 2016 and enjoyed the dinner. Jafre Chase shared, "I am very thankful that God saved me my life. I am thankful for my family. I am thankful God led me this church and church members here. I heard other church members in another city donated turkey to us. I am so thankful for them. I am thankful that God gave me viola to play." He also played the viola piece "Give Thanks" to everyone.
Newcomer Shane shared, "I am thankful that I am still alive. I used to be in prison. I have learned a lot of things in prison. I thank God I can have a new life through Jesus, even though I am already 47. Thanks for today's dinner!"
Church also prepared thanksgiving coloring paper for kids Three kids really enjoyed the coloring and made their own great works.
Praise the Lord! He allows everyone to receive the abundant grace both spiritually and physically! New Life Church gave thanks to God and will plan the upcoming Christmas retreat. They hope more people truly know Jesus Christ deeper. Please pray that God can bless New Life Church grow!
