"In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you" - 1 Thess 5:18
Looking to a day of thanksgiving, we as a local church have so many things to be thankful for. As we gather with family and friends, may we remember the many blessings bestowed upon us and appreciate the goodness of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
