Fit For Life

fitforlifeWe have spent the month of October exploring the essential “fitness” components for building the body of Christ – prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness. We have joined together in 40 days of prayer, guided by devotionals and prayers written by members of our own congregation. Now as we enter into the month of November and begin to prepare for Thanksgiving, we reflect on God’s abundant blessings in our lives and our grateful response to those blessings.

The basic thrust of the teachings of Jesus was that God has given us all that we have and we are to use all that we have in ways that glorify God and serve others. We invite you to prayerfully consider how can you give back to God through your prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness…
