Cross of Christ Thanksgiving FOOD DRIVE - Each Sunday in November we will emphasizing the Houston Community Food Shelf and how they feed those in need. They can use our help to do that, neighbor to neighbor. Each week in November you will be invited to bring in some of the most needed items or your financial gifts:

 

  • Sunday, November 3 - Produce; onions, squash, potatoes, apples, and oranges

  • Sunday, November 10 - Breads and crackers

  • Sunday, November 17 - Canned goods; tuna, soups, pasta sauce

  • Sunday, November 24 - Single serve items for the Backpack Program; fruit and apple sauce cups, and single serve cereal boxes and mac & cheese cups

 

Please bring these items and your financial gifts to church during November and for our Thanksgiving Eve Worship on Wednesday, November 27th. We encourage people to bring their donations to the front during communion as an act of worship showing our thankfulness by feeding those in need in our community.  

This November, the month of Thanksgiving, make thankfulness a daily spiritual practice. Here are some ideas for “A month of Thanksgiving”:

 

  • Pray thanksgiving. In your morning and evening prayers, thank God for your life and whatever specific blessings come to mind.

  • Keep a thanks diary. Every day write down what you are thankful for and why. Challenge yourself to find and pray about 10 things daily.

  • Express thank you. Go out of your way to express thanks to the people you encounter every day with a kind word or a note.

  • Create a thankfulness calendar. Every morning write something on your calendar for which you are grateful to God, and think, pray and meditate on it until bedtime.

All Saints Sunday - We will be remembering the beloved saints of Cross of Christ that have passed since our last All Saints Sunday during our 2019 All Saints Sunday worship service on Nov. 3rd at 10:15 am. All Saints Sunday is a special day on which we rejoice in the many ways so many people have let Christ’s light shine through them, and give thanks to God for the saints we have been blessed to know. As part of this, we name the members who have died in the last year and light a candle on the altar in honor of each one.  Worshipers will also have the opportunity to light a votive candle during communion in memory of other family and friends that have joined the eternal saints past.

Veteran's Day Blessing  November 10th during worship we will recognize members of our congregation who have served our nation and communities. Please bring in your veteran/military remembrances and memorabilia for those currently serving or those who have served in years past to have displayed in our worship space.
