Harvest Thanksgiving Sunday

Good morning and Praise the Lord Jesus Christ. We thank God this Thanksgiving Sunday morning for His faithfulness that despite the lockdown due to Covid 19 we have a reason to give God thanks.

PCEA St. Andrews church celebrates Thanksgiving 3 times a year the first one being the first Sunday of April when we celebrate ‘WORK”. This coming Sunday therefore is a unique Sunday in that we will be celebrating Easter Sunday, Thanksgiving Sunday and Tithe Sunday

The Thanksgiving Theme is Restoration to New life by the Risen Lord taken from Luke 24 vs 31a.

What a wonderful opportunity to be thankful to God for the work Christ did on the cross to save us from our sins and to restore us into fellowship with God. By His rising again he conquered the grave by dying to save us from our sins. ‘Christ… gave Himself up for us an fragrant offering to God and sacrifice to God (Eph.5:2). Charles Wesley asked: ‘And can it be that I should gain an interest in the Saviour’s Blood?... Amazing Love! How can it be that Thou My God shouldst die for me!’

In line with this during the coming Holy week we have the following activities for us together as families to do :
