Attitude of Gratitude
God asks us to thank Him in ALL circumstances. But does that mean we have to like it when we encounter suffering, trials and loss? Do we have to be happy all the time? Come to worship Sundays, November 15 and 22 at 9:30am to hear simple, practical ways for you to build your sense of gratitude. Learn why you can praise God in spite of whatever life brings.
Crossroads supplied two teams for Feed the Need (a.k.a. “Food for Kidz”), a community mission opportunity held at the Waunakee Village Center on October 25th. The youth completed 540 packages, and the adult team completed 684. Each package feeds 6 people, so that is more than 7,300 meals packaged and ready to be sent overseas to families in need.
