A Thankful Church Fellowship

November is a special month, a time we celebrate being thankful. Of course, one should always practice gratefulness, but we get more opportunities to outwardly display it.

At last night’s church fellowship, we had a smaller group, due to a variety of reasons (business, illness, etc), but it was still such a blessing. The focus was thankfulness. First, we sang a few hymns, then Abby sang a hymn, followed by Bethany quoting Scripture, and then Christina singing and playing her ukulele. The elderly love the little ones. Then, we opened it up so anyone could share things they were grateful for. Our friends jumped right in, giving thanks.

We ended our time with all-things pumpkin desserts. Delicious.




“Give thanks unto the LORD, call upon his name,
make known his deeds among the people.”
1 Chronicles 16:8

  1. Dear Sarah,

    When you get a chance, can you please post the recipe for the pumpkin cupcakes? They look delicious. Have you thought about producing a cookbook? Also, it would be appreciated if you could please videotape Abby, Bethany, and Tina performing next time. I am sure that most readers would enjoy seeing and hearing them perform.

    Watch for an upcoming blog post about A, B, and C. I began work on it last week. 😉 No cookbook plans now, but we would like to post recipes occasionally.

  2. Looks like a blessed time of fellowship. 🙂
    I’m sure those dear elderly folks love the little children! I remember when my sweet Mama was in a nursing home, and she always loved having little ones visit. Such a sweet memory.

  3. Such cute photos of the kids! I especially like the one of Christina and her ukelele. A couple of the little kids at my church have started playing the ukelele, too.

  4. Awesome! Looks like so much fun and good fellowship. I’m Canadian and that’s why I’m glad our Thanksgiving is in October, and yours is in November; then we have another reminder to be thankful for God’s goodness. Also, as a music teacher, I am thankful for simple melodies, like the one in Beethoven’s 9th, that are put to words of such thankfulness for that; we truly are “victors in the midst of strife”.
