Attitude of Gratitude
Sermon Series


Begins October 6, 2019

An "attitude" is the way that we feel about something or someone, and it is often reflected in our behavior. Children may have a "bad attitude" when they are going to school, or adults may have a "poor attitude" particularly on Monday mornings. But some of our attitudes are present by choice. When we realize how God has made us to be loved and to be in relationship with God and others, we can begin to experience an Attitude of Gratitude. When we accept that we were created to create and to make a genuine difference in the world, we can reflect that Attitude of Gratitude. This October, we invite you to join us as we explore how we might both feel and reflect an Attitude of Gratitude!


Trunk or Treat



Our second annual Trunk-or-Treat will take place in our parking lots on Sunday, October 27 from 3-5pm.  We need commitments from 50 church folks to decorate their car and pass out candy to the children before we can promote this event to the community (Right now we have 22!).  We will have games for the children and all kinds of fun activities, and we are hoping for a large community turn out, so your help is essential.  For more information, contact Diana.
