23 Nov Happy Thanksgiving from CIL Church
It’s here! We have made it to our wonderful American holiday. I am so glad we have a God to thank! We don’t just thank a concept; we thank a person – and His name is Jesus!
This Sunday Pastor Josh Sakis will preach, and Rob Still will lead us in worship. It will be the beginning of Advent and our theme will be Hope. It’s a Family Sunday, so the elementary students will worship with us. What a great chance for everyone to focus on Jesus as we celebrate this sacred season.
I thank God for you!
For the 2021 Christmas Blessing, we invite you to partner with us as we minister to single mothers and their children at Grace Place Ministry! Grace Place is a local non-profit organization, empowering single mothers in need and their children toward developing healthy, safe, and independent lives in the local community. You can learn more about them by visiting their website!
Through your contributions, we can bless Grace Place in two ways! First, with a night of fellowship and fun, as we provide a warm community meal and tickets to Gaylord Opryland Resort for Mission: Save Christmas! And second, with donations of household consumables to help meet practical, physical needs for the families that Grace Place Ministry serves.
If you’re interested making a financial donation, you can do that here: https://cil.churchcenter.com/giving/to/christmas-blessing. For a list of the items we are collecting for Grace Place, check out the Christmas Blessing page on the CIL website, or look for signs and fliers in the CIL Lobby.
We begin collecting all donations for the 2021 Christmas Blessing this Sunday!
