Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances, for this is Gods will for you in Christ Jesus.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
This month we want to take the time to stop, pause, reflect. To focus on all that God in his amazing love and great mercy has given us at Fetteresso.
As God’s family in Fetteresso we can look back and see God’s hand at work amongst us over many years. There is SO much to give thanks for.......
For our forebears who prayed things into being
The provision of land and building
Pastors to lead us
Music and those skilled in playing and singing as they lead us in praise.
We give thanks for 45 years of faithful service of Ian Gillis as organist and choir master
For those who prayed for us, taught us and guided us
For the vision and outworking of Here and Now coffee shop and book shop
For the vision and continued work of Far and Wide and the Food Bank
For our children, young people and each other
For Matt our youth worker
For all the times we met and shared fellowship with each other
For those we love and miss whom we cannot meet with right now
For those we love who have gone from us now
For new provision and those to come.....
For our town and community
For our schools and teachers
Our counsellors, dentists, doctors, nurses
For our bin men and gardeners
For our shops and tradesmen
For our fishermen and farmers
Our community groups.....
For our homes and families
For friends and neighbours
For our daily bread
For work and rest
Our beautiful landscape
For changing seasons.....
For good times and bad
For God’s word
For prayer heard, answered, awaiting
The list goes on.....
And in all of it Gods Amazing Love and Grace made manifest in Christ our Saviour.......
What can you add? For what or for whom do you want to give thanks?
Let us be a people of thankfulness to our Mighty God who never leaves us nor forsakes us and who alone is worthy of our Praise.
Thanks be to God!
