This weekend is always one of my favorites…and I know that you are thinking that I’m going to list a bunch of the delicious holiday foods huh?
Well, maybe in a second!! I actually love the Thanksgiving weekend because 30 years ago a beautiful woman named Cheryl decided that she wanted to start a journey together …serving Jesus Christ, pastoring some great churches with some awesome people, raising four incredible kids and loving life together. I am blessed and so thankful that she has put up with me for the past 30 years!!
This Sunday Gregg and the team will be leading the singing and worship time. When you come to church this weekend, why not take a bit of time to really “thank” God for all that He has done…and is doing in your life right now. What if we were to live our lives with a high degree of thankfulness and a lower level of entitlement?? I believe that our outlook would be totally different every day! If this hasn’t been a great week or if Thanksgiving is not a great weekend for you…push through and thank God even in the middle of your tough circumstances.
Just a reminder that this Sunday we are asking everyone to bring an item that can be shared with the Cyrus Centre. In case you didn’t know, the Cyrus Centre is a faith-based centre that the youth of Abbotsford can go to in times of trouble. They can get a hot meal, get some laundry done and find some strength and support of some great workers and volunteers. We have been working alongside the Cyrus Centre as a church for the past few years.
Here is the list of items that they have requested…
This Sunday I have asked Kris Baker to share the word of God at Alderbrook. Jared and I are away at a hockey tournament…and yes, my bride is very understanding given that this is our anniversary weekend. I know that Kris will have a stirring and challenging Thanksgiving message for each one of us.
Again, Happy Thanksgiving. We are so thankful for the Alderbrook church family.
Pastor Glenn and Cheryl
Ps Cheryl makes an awesome ‘pumpkin cheesecake’…it’s my favorite!!
