A Community Thanksgiving – November 24
Tree of Life Ministries organizes a Thanksgiving Day dinner for anyone in need financially, or for anyone who needs a place to go, or even for anyone who doesn’t like to cook on Thanksgiving. It’s open to all. They need volunteers to donate or cook food, and to serve. The dinner is 12:30 to 2:00 p.m. on November 24, so you could still help and get to your own family’s celebration afterwards. Click here to help or to attend 



On November 6, Pastor Jack gave us examples from Hebrews 11:32-35a of ordinary people who were commended for their faith in God, not for their performances. The people mentioned in the chapter were flawed but called by faith. Click here for “Faith in…Difficulties”
