Gratitude Sunday
This Sunday is Gratitude Sunday. As we kick off our Stewardship Season, we are asking our church family “for what are you grateful lately?”

Our children and youth took the lead by writing down on brightly colored paper leaves what they are grateful for lately. 

This Gratitude Sunday an usher will hand you a paper leaf of your own so that you may express what you are grateful for these days. At the beginning, during or after worship, please write on your leaf what is filling you with gratitude.

All our leaves will be placed on the tree and a beautiful tree of gratitude will come to life before our eyes.  

Life is a gift to be received with gratitude and a task to be pursued with courage.”
- Confession of 1967, PC (USA)

Living Into Hope

“I have given no definition of love. This is impossible,
because there is no higher principle by which it could be defined.
It is life itself in its actual unity.
The forms and structures in which love embodies itself are the forms
and structures in which love overcomes its self-destructive forces.”

- Paul Tillich, The Protestant Era
