I’m so thankful for Thanksgiving season! We have so many wonderful traditions at thanksgiving.
Sunday, November 22 Thanksgiving Sunday
Starting with our Thanksgiving Sunday morning, November 22 in both services we will focus on giving thanks to the Lord! In our singing and in
our sharing. You will have the opportunity to publicly give your thanks to God.
Having an attitude of gratitude is an act of faith. It means you are unafraid to live and be happy because you have faith in a God who cares for you and provides for you. He is faithful and His promises are true. He never fails. And because you have a relationship with this wonderful God you have contentment, joy and a desire to pass on some of what God has blessed you with. To trust is to thank. It creates an attitude of gratitude.
Sunday, November 22 Harvest Dinner
Here we go again! The Church Family Feud is back for an encore . Come for the food, stay for the laughs. It’s always silly when our church family is involved in a game show!
As you have come to expect we will have another powerful testimony. Don Lakin will be sharing how God worked through his battle with cancer. You have prayed for him and have observed the miracles. Now come hear his story! Don’s faith journey will inspire you to be able to trust Jesus in your most difficult struggles in life. Bring your tissues.

We welcome Dr. Bill and Ann Clemmers missionaries to South Sudan. As medical missionaries the Clemmers see some of the most heartbreaking life experiences of people in a most difficult part of the world. It has been more than 20 years since they have returned back to the Northwest, so we are very excited to hear from them. Our Congo team was able to meet up with them when we visited Africa, but that was back when the Clemmers were serving in Democratic Republic of the Congo. In the late 1990’s when the Congo was being over run by rebels
the hospital at Vonga was taken over by teenagers with AK47. Bill was held at gun point as they demanded the narcotics be turned over. Needless to say, Bill has many stories of God’s provision and grace, he is still alive!
