Colonial Thanksgiving

SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 24 AT 9:30 a.m.

Come dressed as in days of old when our forefathers gathered together to give thanks to the Lord. Following the service, a special coffee hour is provided by Sue Van Veldhuisen and volunteers.

This year Richard Donohue will be with us assisting Pastor Doug with the morning service.

Journey to the Potter’s House

On November 17th, during the 9:30 AM service, the Reverend Michael Ferris will use the art of making pottery to share the message that God uses the events in our lives to mold us into who He wants us to be.

Heard any good stories lately? When I was growing up, our local library had ‘Story Hour’, a time when children would gather around and listen to the librarian read from the picture books. Our librarian, Mrs. Barksdale, was a great story teller, and would have a crowd of children gathered around listening with rapt attention. I was listening too, working quietly at the circulation desk, as she made those stories come alive. This memory came back to me as I watched video excerpts of “Journey to the Potter’s House”. On November 17th, during the 9:30 AM service, the Reverend Michael Ferris will use the art of making pottery to share the message that God uses the events in our lives to mold us into who He wants us to be. This will be a very uplifting day for all, especially for those who are facing challenges in their lives.

After the 90-minute service, there will be a meet and greet with Pastor Ferris, and he will have some of his pottery available for purchase.
