Thank You, Lord, for Everything

Dear Lord,
Thank you for the breath to say
Thank you for another day
Thank you for the eyes to see the world of beauty surrounding me
Thank you for the ears to hear your message of hope loud and clear
Thank you for the hands to serve and far more blessings than I deserve
Thank you for the legs to run the race of life until it's won
Thank you for the voice to sing
Thank you, Lord, for everything
Amen


Wishing you and yours a very blessed Thanksgiving.

YOUR HELP IS NEEDED:
** IT WILL SOON BE MEMBERS OF GRACE'S TURN TO WORK AT THE DIORAMA**
          Here is a great opportunity to help your church, spread the message of Jesus birth to thousands of people and renew inside of you what Christmas is all about! 
         We are in need of people of all ages and abilities to help at the Diorama at Riverside Park.  Some characters do quite a bit of standing (the Angel Choir and Roman guards), some do a lot of walking (the citizens and Wise Men), some only sit (Mary and the tax collectors), some do a little of each (shepards and Joseph), and some walk and sit a little, but are always warm (the people in the warming trailer serving food or helping people get dressed at First Lutheran School). 
        A few things you may not know:  The angel choir is a recording, so even if you can't carry a note, no worry!   All of the outer clothing is supplied; you dress underneath however warm you wanna be!  There are people at First Lutheran that will help you choose clothes and get you dressed.  A bus takes you to and from First Lutheran/diorama.  Groups take turns being a character and being in the warming trailer.  If you would love to be a part of the diorama, but are unable to do it our weekend, you can volunteer ANY Saturday or Sunday, just go to First Lutheran School about an hour before leaving for the diorama.  Even if you are not interested in being a character or helping down at the diorama, we need people to supply food for the volunteers.  Snacks, treats, sandwiches, hot cocoa, anything would be appreciated! 
       When you hear the remarks of people walking and/or driving by, you realize just how special this opportunity has been.  Please sign up at church and/or contact Carl Cox, Pastor Rimmert or George Italiano with any questions.
