November  2018

As we move into the fall, just like a roller coaster,  the church picks up speed. The Spirit of God is  there as we worship, as we learn, and as we serve. Our life can take us up and down, just like a roller coaster. Sometimes we find it hard to be thankful, even at this time of year. Sometimes it feels like we are alone, but we are not. God occupies the   seat next to us all the time. I hope we all, always   find comfort in this roller coaster of life knowing    God is always by our side. Even when we are stuck in a rut and it's hard to be thankful, we need   to remember, there is always something for which   to be thankful!

If you ever do feel alone or in a rut, always remember your church family is here. We have ministries, volunteer opportunities, and groups where you can meet people. We are always here for you in this   roller coaster of life!
God Bless,
Angela McCoy
