INTERGENERATIONAL THANKSGIVING WORSHIP
Sunday, October 10th at 10 am
This Sunday we celebrate Thanksgiving as an intergenerational community. Through scripture, story and song we will explore what it means to be thankful. How do we live out gratitude for all that God has given us, and in the ways we relate to and support one another in community? We are grateful for the musical leadership of our music scholar Jotham Sennema.
The scripture readings this week are:
