Our Thanksgiving Service is held on November 12, where we give thanks for the year that’s been and celebrate St John’s birthday. As we reflect on the last 12 months, we want to space for our Church to give thanks to God.
Our Thanksgiving Services will each feature an open mic section, where you can share what you’re thankful for with our church family.
Our 6pm service will be going off-site to have a Thanksgiving festival at the Regional Playspace (the tram park) from 5pm. Join us for an evening of fun, games, free BBQ and a time of thanksgiving – A great opportunity to bring a friend!
We’ll also be running our annual Thanksgiving Appeal. This gives you an opportunity to praise God and give him thanks for the year gone by going above and beyond your regular giving. We’d love you to consider what your capacity to give might be, and to give in one of two ways this year: through direct debit with the description ‘Thanksgiving Appeal’ or using Tithe.ly online giving and selecting the Thanksgiving Appeal option. Head to stjohnsdc.org.au/giving for instructions on how to give.
We’ve also put together a few Thanksgiving Resources for families and households to use in times of fellowship and play to practice thankfulness! Check out these ideas or create your own to foster attitudes of gratitude at home!
Bring things you’ve collected, or stories you’d like to share to our Thanksgiving services as we give God thanks and praise.
