Giving Thanks
What a wonderful weekend we have before us!  The United Church of Chester is celebrating Thanksgiving by giving:

  • giving our time tomorrow (Saturday) morning from 8-11 to button up the church property for winter.  Bring a rake!
  • giving gift cards, also tomorrow morning from 9-Noon, to feed families in need this season.
  • giving our stewardship pledge of commitment during Sunday morning worship.
  • giving our faith community support and direction during our Annual Meeting Sunday after worship. 
  • giving thanks at the Interfaith Thanksgiving Service Sunday at 3 with our sister congregations. There’s still time to register, deadline is 3pm today. Email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with your name.

And then – I’m giving myself a break.  I will be taking some time off and will be back at work Wednesday December 2, when we will already be into Advent!  So before I go, I want to remind you to stop by the church at your convenience and pick up an Advent devotional; this year’s is titled Draw Near, and it is filled with the same wisdom, thought and good humor we have come to expect from the UCC’s Still-Speaking Writers Group.  Also, I will be leading a weekly Advent Study around the entries in the devotional Thursday mornings in Advent at 10:00 via Zoom; please contact me or the church office if you’d like to be part of this, and I will send out the Zoom link on my return.
Thanksgiving is going to look a lot different for all of us this year, but our hearts remain filled with gratitude for God’s abundant gifts, including the gift of one another.  Many blessings, dear friends!
