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!
"Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful." ~Colossians 4:2
