Dear Church Family,
This month in our daily Bible reading we’re going to be reading verses about giving thanks to God. I encourage to read along with us and be challenged to “give thanks in all circumstances” as the Apostle Paul exhorts us to do. Speaking of giving thanks, we all know that Thanksgiving is right around the corner. As you know, last year our Church Family Thanksgiving Dinner was canceled due to Covid. Thankfully, this year we are bringing it back. We will gather for our Church Family Thanksgiving Dinner on Sunday, November 21st at 5pm in the Social Hall. We will enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving meal followed by the Lord’s Supper.
Since we're still dealing with the virus in our city we will be implementing some changes in order to gather as safely as possible. One change we will be implementing is that we will be catering the entire meal. So instead of asking you to bring a covered dish, we are asking you to make a donation toward the cost of the meal. Feel free to invite your friends and family to join us! We will need you and anyone you plan to bring with you to RSVP by November 17th. You can RSVP through our website by going to www.thehillbaptist.com and clicking on Thanksgiving RSVP. I’m looking forward to gathering with you!
Before we exit November we have one more special event planned. The first Sunday of Advent is Sunday, November 28th. We will have our Hanging of the Green Service that evening at 6pm. I look forward to this service every year! For me, it marks the beginning of the Christmas season. I hope you will plan on attending. Also, this is another great opportunity to invite your friends and family to join you! I’m looking forward to gathering with you on these special occasions!
