I love its history and heritage! I love its vision and future!
I love the spirit of Jesus which is in the hearts and lives of our members
and friends! We aren't perfect but we are pressing on to be more
"Christ-like" every day! I love this church!
"Researchers tell us that the most powerful emotion isn't love. It's gratitude.
Living with an "attitude of gratitude" transforms our perspective on life. It shapes how we respond to
life's struggles and how we relate to both people and God. If you're grateful, your life shows it in
numerous ways. You're positive, thinking the best of others. You're kind to people, especially those
around you who are hurting, too. When you choose to thank God and be grateful, your heart is set free
from bitterness, anger, complaint and criticism. I love to be around grateful people. It's so refreshing to
be around people who are thankful to God for life, their job, their family. A grateful attitude is
contagious. It can transform an office, a staff, a classroom, a church - and a family from focusing on
what they don't have, to all that they do have.
So be grateful. It's a matter of choice. Though you often can't choose those things life throws at you,
you can always choose your response. God's will for each of us is to thank God in all circumstances
because God loves us! We can put our full trust in God no matter what we are facing. We can thank
God because God will see us through even the hardest times! Make the choice to do God's will today
and give God thanks."
God has given us the power to choose how we respond to life. Choose to thank God! It's God's will for
you and makes you a better person and follower of Jesus Christ."
