Thanksgiving is soon upon us, in our sermon series and worship we will examine some of the spiritual practices that relate to the Thanksgiving season.
First we will explore the practice of gratitude and how that enriches our lives and the lives of others.
Second, we will examine the practice of generosity, living open-handed in a world of scarcity and recognizing God as our generous host invites us to freely receive and freely give.
Third, we will discuss the spiritual practice of stewardship. Stewardship is an old word that we don’t use commonly. It means to tend the world and its resources wisely. We are good stewards of the environment, good stewards of our resources, good stewards in our cities. This involves caring for others and the world that we live in.
Finally, we will explore the spiritual practice of hospitality which is much more than providing food and a pretty table. Hospitality is a posture of welcome that we have toward others in our often hostile world.

Grace UMC has a hybrid worship style that includes both contemporary worship songs and hymns. While contemporary worship songs keep us current and able to speak to this generation, hymns connect us to an ancient people who loved God and followed Jesus in a different era. Occasionally we will sing a verse or two in Spanish as we have a few members of our community whose first language is Spanish.
Childcare is provided during the service.
