Give Thanks!

Greetings, ALBC Family!
 
This coming Sunday at ALBC is one of my favorite services of the year.  Revelation 12:11 states that Satan experiences defeat through the blood of the lamb and the word of our testimony.  We will all have the opportunity to stand before our church family and testify to the goodness of God in our lives at our annual Thanksgiving Service this Sunday.  Come ready to worship the Lamb!
 
Thanks so much for all of you who packed shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child.  Our church was able to contribute 79 boxes – that is up 51 from last year!!  Well done!  Please continue to pray for the children who will receive these boxes and that the gospel that is shared with them will penetrate their hearts.
 
We continue to rejoice over all of the children that God has blessed our congregation with.  We would like to ask that when you arrive at church, your children stay in the lobby, the recital hall or be with you.  We have had children upstairs while the prayer team is praying up there and that is disruptive to them.  It has also been difficult for some parents to locate their children when it comes time for church to start.  Thanks so much for your help with this!
 
We have had a request via our webpage by a women who is new to our area.  She has a health issue that will not allow her to drive for the next few weeks.  She is in need of a ride to and from work in Collegeville and sometimes Norristown a few days a week.  If you would be interested in helping out and getting some more details, please contact Liz at:  liz@engagelife.org. 
 
The excitement surrounding this special time of year are beginning to mount in my household and I hope that you all are anticipating the days ahead with joy.  The reality is, however for many, this is a difficult time of year;  a reminder of how life is not ideal.  May we all seek to be kind neighbors, thoughtful co-workers and good friends to the people that God has placed in our lives.
 
Looking forward to celebrating Thanksgiving this Sunday,
Pastor Randy
