"After all I've done for you! You are so ungrateful." Have you ever said that? Has anyone ever said that to you?  Very few things sting a relationship like ingratitude.  And the reason it stings is because it's the exact opposite of what we expect, and it's the opposite of what we think we deserve.  But the problem with ingratitude is that it is very hard to see in the mirror. So what can we do to improve our relationships damaged by ingratitude?

Join us this Sunday for a Thanksgiving sermon, "Expression of Gratitude."


Registration is required. More info and registration at More information about the service is available at

Registration for the in-person worship service closes at 12 PM (noon) on Saturday.

Join us at for an online-only service featuring a variety of musical styles.
