Gaston Fam._-107-Edit  A Note From Pastor Georgette                                                                                     

Colossians 3:15 (CEV) says, ” Each one of you is part of the body of Christ, and you were chosen to live together in peace. So let the peace that comes from Christ control your thoughts. And be grateful.”  Sometimes it seems nearly impossible to live with an attitude of gratitude. All around us, we see and experience things that are wrong in our lives, families, communities. The world can seem more dark than light. So how do we chase out the darkness? How can we shine the light of God’s love into the darkness? With a heart, mind and life fixed on gratitude!

In the month of November, we will focus on the blessings of life and faith. Gratitude journals with daily scriptures focusing on gratitude and praise are available for everyone. Take your journal home, reflect and write your blessings. The “Wall of Gratitude” will be up again in both stairwells to share gratitude with others. During worship, we will hear short stories of gratitude from those who reach, teach and serve with love in Christ’s name.
November is a great time to express our gratitude for all the little things that make a huge impact for RUMC. If you’re wondering where to start, here are some suggestions:
