As we gather together on this special Thanksgiving Day, my heart overflows with gratitude for each and every one of you. This day serves as a beautiful reminder of the many blessings we have received from our Heavenly Father, and I want you to know that you are among the greatest gifts I am thankful for.
Your unwavering support, dedication, and love for our church community have been a source of inspiration and joy in my life and ministry. It is truly humbling to serve as your pastor and witness the incredible faith and kindness that radiate from this congregation. Your generosity, not only towards one another but also towards our wider community, exemplifies the teachings of Christ and serves as a shining example for all to see.
As we celebrate Thanksgiving, I encourage you to be of good courage and to hold fast to the knowledge that you are deeply loved, not only by me but, more importantly, by God.
Our faith in God sustains us through all seasons of life, and His love is a constant source of strength and comfort. Remember that His love knows no bounds and is always there to guide us, protect us, and fill our hearts with hope.
In the spirit of Thanksgiving, let us also extend our love and gratitude to those who may be facing difficult times or loneliness during this holiday season. Let us be a beacon of hope and support for those in need, just as God has been for us.
May this Thanksgiving be a time of reflection, joy, and unity for our church family. Let us cherish the moments we share, count our blessings, and continue to be a source of love and encouragement to one another.
Thank you for being a vital part of our First Presbyterian Church of Eustis family. I am truly blessed to journey through life with all of you, and I look forward to the many more moments of growth, faith, and love that we will experience together.
With a heart full of gratitude and love,
