“Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth. Worship the LORD with gladness, come into his presence with singing. Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise. Give thanks to him, bless his name.
Thanksgiving is a wonderful season of the year.The beautiful fall colors on the trees give praise to our creator God. As Christians we give thanks to God for all our many blessings, day after day, year after year. We are thankful for the basic necessities of life – food and clean water, clothing, and shelter.
We are thankful to be citizens of the United States of America, a democratic nation that elects our President every 4 years (Remember to vote on Nov. 8th!).We are thankful for God’s Church worldwide and our local Oxford United Methodist Church that reaches people in need. We are thankful to be active in mission and outreach to people in our community (through Community Meals, FISH Food Pantry, LOVE I.N.C.) and around the world (UMCOR disaster relief, missionaries, mission projects, etc.).
On November 20th Thanksgiving Sunday please join us as we give thanks to God with amazing Bell Choir and Praise Singers music, an uplifting message and prayers, and a delicious brunch afterwards.
Let us joyfully sing “Give thanks with a grateful heart” this Thanksgiving season and always.
