    Revival Service

  • In 1621, the original colonist with the Wanpanoag Indians celebrated what many consider to be the first thanksgiving. Of the 102 original colonists, only 54 had survived to this point. Though the colonists had been plagued with pain, suffering, disease, and death, they were still grateful for the harvest. Even with the issues, the colonists found reason to rejoice and be thankful.

  • The Psalmist said, “Enter His gates with thanksgiving, and His courts with praise” (100:4). He also said, “Let them also offer sacrifices of thanksgiving” (107:22). Moses instructed the children of Israel, “When you have eaten and are satisfied, you shall bless the Lord your God for the good which He has given you” (Deuteronomy 8:10).

  • Thought for the week: Life can never promise you to be happy, but life gets better after you accept things you just can’t change.

    Hope everyone has a blessed Thanksgiving. Congratulations to Samantha Benningfield on being chosen for November employee of month at Nationwide Uniform. Happy 94th birthday wishes goes out to Nancy Raine. Also, happy birthday to David Jackson.
