God's Providence

As long as the world exists, there will be a time for planting and a time for harvest.  There will always be cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night. 

                                                               -Genesis 8:22 TEV



God's providence is especially evident in the abundant harvest and beauty of each changing season.  Words of Thanksgiving can be found in our UM Hymnal, p.#131; since 1626 believers have been singing the Nederlandtch Gedencklanck; (perhaps the translation by Theodore baker of 1894 will sound more familiar)


We Gather Together

We gather together to ask the Lord's blessing; he chastens and hastens his will to make known.  The wicked oppressing now cease from distressing. 

Sing praises to his name; he forgets not his own.

Beside us to guide us, our God with us joining, ordaining, maintaining his kingdom divine; so from the beginning the fight we were winning; thou, Lord, wast at our side, all glory be thine!

We all do extol thee, thou leader triumphant, and pray that thou still our defender wilt be.  Let thy congregation escape tribulation; thy name be ever praised!  O Lord, make us free!


Have a blessed Thanksgiving; Be sure to gather together in worship, and receive the Lord's blessing.

Pastor Rhonda 



Thanksgiving blessed
