Thursday, November 22—Thanksgiving Day
Happy Thanksgiving, friends.
Almighty and gracious Father, we give you thanks for the fruits of the earth in their season and for the labors of those who harvest them. Make us, we pray, faithful stewards of your great bounty, for the provision of our necessities and the relief of all who are in need, to the glory of your Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Making our pledge to our common life in 2019…
As we move into the fall, we invite all of us to consider prayerfully how we are called to support with our financial offering the mission and ministry of the Episcopal Church of the Cross in 2019. A pledge is an estimate of our material support of our common life.
We can make our commitment online at https://churchofthecrosslaketravis.org/give/.
We thank one another for this prayerful ministry of giving and service, another way by which we are the people of God the Lord creates, and is creating.
Update on Feast of Sharing…
We had been hoping to serve with Feast of Sharing Thanksgiving Week. We discovered HEB was already at full capacity for volunteer help for this event. In December, however, we’ll be helping Partners in Hope with their annual Christmas decoration ministry on Saturday, December 8. So please join us on the 8th to bring some Christmas cheer to our neighbors! For more information, please be in touch with our Youth Minister, Jon Slimack, at email@example.com. Thanks!
