As we head into the holiday season, we have much to be thankful for. We also have much to look forward to, Thanksgiving and beyond…
This week, all of us at Grace Pointe want to send out blessings to you and yours for a most happy Thanksgiving! May you enjoy a peaceful time with family and loved ones, along with plenty of opportunities to share with others the things for which you are truly grateful. Remember to pray for those who don’t have families or enjoy the blessings that you do, and ask God to show you how you can make someone’s holiday a bit brighter. It will surely brighten yours, as well.
Of course, we are thankful for the blessings God has given us here at GPCC. We have a building that’s paid for and many amazing workers who give their time to teach classes, play instruments, sing and lead worship, and more. We’re grateful for the volunteers who mow the lawn, clean the church, and make sure there’s hot coffee on Sunday mornings. We have a security team that helps keep us safe while we gather together each weekend, folks who lead and host life groups at their own homes, caring individuals who handle our prayer request emails and rally the prayer warriors together, and loving members who feel like family.
And let’s not forget those behind the scenes! We appreciate our board of elders and the leadership of the church. We are thankful for the Audio Visual team that keeps things looking and sounding good during the services, and all the work that goes into our website and social media. And, of course, we are so grateful for visitors who come, and especially those who decide to make Grace Pointe their home church. The fellowship of the saints is glorious!
Finally, we want to thank God again for the Zielinske family. We praise God for bringing them to us, and we are thrilled to have Pastor Aaron as our shepherd. We pray all the richest blessings be upon them as they prepare to move here and as they serve each week among this body of believers.
Coming up during the month of December, we will be celebrating each week of Advent. The Sunday sermons will deal with the importance of Advent and what each week signifies. And naturally, we will be celebrating the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
Don’t miss a message during this exciting time of Advent and Christmas joy! More to come…
For now, God bless you! Have a terrific Thanksgiving, and we’ll see you back at the Pointe soon!
