We don’t need to review how difficult 2020 has been for our society, our families, our work/businesses, our schools, and churches. However, the scriptures remind us that we are to be thankful in (not “for”) all circumstances. For Christians, gratitude has always been a spiritual antidote to the many difficulties life can bring; but gratitude is also a spiritual discipline through which other fruits of the spirit can be found and shared.
Our “Gratitude Tour” at First Church begins on Sunday, October 25 and goes through Thanksgiving Sunday on November 22. Each Sunday, along with the usual elements of worship, there will be laypersons expressing gratitude for the diverse ministries of First Church. Whether in-person or livestream worship, we believe these lay talks will inspire us to plan for another successful year of generous stewardship in 2021.
In joyful support of the ministries and property of our church, I/we make the following estimate of gifts to the Operating Budget for our 2021 Gratitude Tour.
