a note from our pastor
We made it, we are almost there.. the season of the year when we take a moment to express our gratitude to God and be thankful for all that he has done for us. Whether you had a great or not so great year, you can't deny God's faithfulness in your life and I am sure that whatever God has allowed you to go through this year will only make you stronger. When we place our trust in Jesus, we can't fail; Jesus gave His life so that we could be forgiven and redeemed!
And if we talk about giving, what a great opportunity we have to be more like Jesus when it comes to giving. This year we will be blessing a school in our community and also reaching out to a small community in Juarez Mexico. You will hear more about this on Sunday. But what I wanted you to know is that you can be part of this amazing opportunity and bless others.
On Sunday, you will be given an envelope as you come in, and at the end we all will be encouraged to give towards our outreach activities this year. If each family gives at least $30 (besides tithes and offering) we will be able to meet our need to bless others this year. I am grateful beyond words for how generous The Gathering has always been, and I know this year will not be the exception. Together we can accomplish far more than alone, so let's make a difference in those around us and share the love of Jesus by giving a little of what God has given us. I hope to see you this Sunday at The Gathering.
with a lot of love,
P.S. If you want to give online towards our outreach activities, just choose "outreach" as the designation when giving online. You can give online HERE.
THANK YOU NOTES - A NEW SERIES
A two week series on the importance on being thankful.
Don’t let the worries of life get your mind off of God. Instead, look to your heavenly father for provision, trusting in his providence; be thankful for what he has already done.
Series begins this Sunday November 13th.
ONE - A COMMUNITY-WIDE PRAYER GATHERING
One Body. One Purpose. One Prayer. For our nation, our city, our brother.
Join us for a time of prayer with other churches in our community. This meeting is hosted by Fuel the Fire Ministries and it is held at different locations every two months.
Next gathering is this Sunday November 13th at 6pm at First Presbyterian Church here in Midland (800 West Texas Avenue, Midland, TX).
THANKSGIVING OUTREACH LUNCH
Every year for the last four years, The Gathering Church has catered and served a Thanksgiving lunch for the students and teachers at Richard Milburn High School (located in the Kingsway Mall, down from our church).
This year, we are doing it again, and we need your help!
Lunch will be served at the school from 11:45am - 12:45pm.
We will need volunteers to setup tables and chairs at 11am, as well as volunteers to serve the food.
If you are able to volunteer, please contact Robert Fowler at (432) 770-4012.
Thank you for your help in serving students in our community this Thanksgiving season!
