COMMUNITY THANKSGIVING MEAL
It’s not too late to make plans to come for the Community Thanksgiving Meal this Thursday, November 27. The meal will be served from 11:30am until 1:30pm at the Denmark High School cafetorium. It is free to those from our area who are alone, those who are unable to prepare a meal themselves, and those who are away from family. There is also a home delivery option for those who are unable to come. There is extra space at this table...no one should go hungry or be alone on Thanksgiving.

CIRCLES OF FAITH PARISH MISSION
When a shepherd in Scotland was asked if his sheep would follow the voice of a stranger, he replied: ‘Yes, when they are sick, but never when they are well. A sick sheep will follow anybody.
Need help in following the Good Shepherd? Plan on attending the Circle of Faith Parish Mission, March 22-26, 2015.
Sunday Stewardship Message
For Christian stewards, Thanksgiving Day has special meaning, for we know that gratitude lies at the very heart of stewardship. A grateful heart is the beginning of discipleship and opens the way to our response, a desire to make a return to God for the bounty in our lives.
