Scripture:                   Ephesians 1: 3-14

Sermon Title:             “A Time of Thanksgiving”

Sermon Theme:         We understand that God calls us to work together for the betterment of the world, meeting the needs of those in need, and sharing the gospel message.  So today we also give thanks for the presence of God, who forgive our sins, empower us, and provides the gift of new life.  God’s love for us individually and for the world is so great and so powerful we cannot begin to understand it.  Like the glory of Creation this love is complex and miraculous, but we feel this love, we experience it each and every day, and through the lavish blessing of our Creator we know that we are not only given what we need, but we are given more than enough to share.
