Worship at Gloria Dei Saturdays 5:00pm, Sundays 9:00am and 10:30am

I Thank My God Every Time I Remember You

As you know, this weekend is Pastor Dwight’s last weekend with us in worship. He will be retiring from professional ministry, but will continue, like all of us, to let his light shine for Christ in many and various ways. “To you, Pastor Dwight, we say Thank You!”

We have been blessed by Dwight’s ministry among us. For these past eight years he has served faithfully as our first Executive Pastor / COO. In all, Dwight has been a pastor for 42 years. Well Done, Good and Faithful Servant!

Pastor Dwight will be preaching this weekend, and we will say thank you to him during each service. There will be card baskets available if you’d like to give Dwight and his wife Kathy a note or a card.

On Sunday, in between services, Dwight and Kathy will be available to meet and greet from 10:00 until 10:30. Please find time to say a big “Thank You” to Pastor Dwight Stensgaard.

In addition to being thankful for Pastor Dwight, we are grateful for all of God’s good gifts. This coming week we celebrate the national holiday of Thanksgiving. Gloria Dei will worship together at 6 pm on Wednesday, November 24, and give thanks and praise to God.

Following worship that evening, you are invited to stay for a bit to share in pie, dessert, and fellowship. A few of you signed up to bring a pie and/or dessert to share. We could use a few more. If you are able, you can bring a sliced pie or dessert to Gloria Dei Tues Nov 23, 8a-4pm or Wed Nov 24, 8a-12p or bring with you that evening to worship. Let us know you will bring one here https://gloriadeisd.breezechms.com/form/thanksgivingevesocial

I wish for all of you God’s richest and deepest blessings. You belong to God. He has named you and claimed you as his own through the love shown to us in Jesus, God’s Son.

Happy Thanksgiving and I’ll see you in worship!

Pastor Tim
