Did you know???

 

. . . Setting aside a special time to give thanks for one's blessings is a practice that long predates the European settlement of North America?  

. . . Debates over where the "first Thanksgiving" took place on modern American territory were held? Local boosters in Virginia, Florida and Texas promoted their own colonists who (like many people getting off a boat) gave thanks for setting foot on dry land again!  

 

However according to historian James Baker "the American holiday’s true religion was 

the New England Calvinist Thanksgiving.” 

 

This year Thanksgiving will be celebrated in our church on Sunday, November 22nd. It is 

the time of the year the Deacons recognize with Thanks and Appreciation, the work of a member of the congregation.

 

In this time of transition when things are different, CPC still has much to be thankful for. 

The PNC is now receiving responses to our call for a new Pastor. We are told that this is 

a process that takes about nine to twelve months. In the mean time we also have a Session sub-committee that is working toward securing a short term interim Pastor and we are almost there!

So . . . Come, Praise and Thank our God together in this special season!  

Yours in Christ,

Pat Bidas

Clerk of Session
