Help! My Bible is Alive

Special Thanksgiving Offering

For many, this may not be a year we feel especially inclined to give thanks. In our own church family and around the world, lives have been lost.

By no coincidence, this is the time we have chosen to look to Jesus’ example through the apostle Paul, who found reason to give thanks in all circumstances.
