Happy Thanksgiving!! Today at our special Thanksgiving service, we will be reflecting on 1 Thessalonians 5:12-28, focusing on verse 16-18. Giving Thanks In All Circumstances. Paul reminds us to be joyful always, pray continually, and to give thanks in all circumstances. God has blessed us and so we take time on Thanksgiving Day to say Thank You! for his blessings and presence in the past year.
