No Children’s Church Today: Since we will be helping to Pack the Pulpit, we will not have children’s church today.
No Bible Classes Wednesday: Because of the Thanksgiving holiday, we will not have any mid-week activities this week.
Thanksgiving Ideas for Families:
• Tablecloth of Thanks: Create a family tradition by having everyone sign the dinner table cloth with their name and something for which they are thankful. Use the same tablecloth every year and have family members add something new every year. Be sure to use fabric markers, so that the ink doesn’t come off in the wash.
• Blessing Book: Start a blessing book by buying a simple journal and have each family member write down one blessing from the past year. Keep the journal from year
to year and have family members add new blessings every year. For those children that are not yet able to write, a simple picture will do.
• Tree of Thanks: Take advantage of the fall leaves to build a Tree of Thanks. Send the kids to the back yard for a tree branch and some fallen leaves. Plant the branch in a pot filled with craft sand. As family members arrive for Thanksgiving dinner, let the kids give each person either a real leaf or a cut out leaf from paper and ask the guests to write something on the leaf for which they are thankful. Use either paperclips or Christmas tree ornament hangers to hand the leaves on the branch.
