Thanksgiving is a wonderful time of year to give thanks to God for all our many blessings. It is also serves as a time of unity across our nation as we all recall and affirm our forebearers, who worked hard and persevered so that God could work through them.
Our freedom to worship is one of those great blessings for which we give thanks in this country. I encourage you to exercise that freedom and join us this weekend after Thanksgiving Day for worship at 8:30 or 11:00. It will be a splendid way to conclude your thanksgiving!
You may be surprised that this coming Sunday is the first Sunday of Advent. This marks the first Sunday of the new Christian liturgical year.
We will begin our new sermons series, “Love In Action…That’s Christmas!” These next four sermons will help us prepare for a deep and meaningful experience of Advent and Christmas.
This week we will read from 1st Thessalonians 3:9-13. The text is about thanksgiving, joy and how we grow in love. Our sermon title will be, “Abound In Love.”
It is indeed an exciting time to participate at Boston Avenue as the décor changes for the season, the festivities begin, the special services abound with such majesty and beauty. Come worship - and be on the lookout for others that may be looking for a place to worship. Will you help them by inviting them to come and worship at Boston Avenue?
It is a fabulous time to be at Boston Avenue on Sunday! I hope to see you!!
