Welcome to Caddo Mills UMC
Rev. Wendy Curran Meyers November 12, 2017 “Thanks for Everything”

Greeting and Church-wide Announcements – JASON DAVIS

A warm welcome to all, members and visitors, as we celebrate this season of Thanksgiving. As we gather, we proclaim that the long-ago feast of Pilgrims and Native Americans proved to be a symbol of our common membership in the human race. And was a living representation of our calling “to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with our God.” Today we are reminded to be thankful to God for all the blessings that have been lavished on us.

Friday morning “Bible Talk” will resume this coming Friday, November 17th, 9-10am
2 more “Pie with the Pastor” opportunities. Sign up in the kitchen.

Grieving, Lost and Alone
Lord of Wisdom, we faithfully believe in the promise of your Heavenly Kingdom. Yet, we allow our personal living to determine our personal giving. Enable us to be generous givers whose giving is not controlled by our personal wants. Awaken our spirit to the knowledge that we have a limited time to give to your ministries. We pray in the name of your Son, who will come again as Jesus the Christ. Amen. Matthew 25:1-13

SERMON: “Thanks for Everything”

Philippians 4:6-7 (NRSV) – Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
