(Continued)

This Sunday First Presbyterian Church will celebrate the Thanksgiving season through the sermon, “Grateful for the God Moments,” based on Psalm 138. Pastor Dena Vittorio will explore ways that help us make the most of these holy moments that lead us closer to God and to a healthier plan of living.

This worship of praise, song, and gratitude will culminate in our annual pitch-in Thanksgiving Dinner following worship. Jo Beth Martin will serve as liturgist. Ann Fenimore will lift our spirits through the prelude, “Festival of Praise” by Johnson, the offertory, “A Psalm of Praise,” and the postlude, “Now Joyfully Sing,” both by Hutson. This Sunday, you will be greeted by members Rick and Chris Levi and Les Fenimore.

We joyfully welcome all to experience God’s grace as we follow the Light of Christ through this downtown church!

Ever been angry? Of course! We all experience anger, even Christ did. It’s what we do with that anger that makes all the difference. We need to deal with it in a Godly manner, which is never easy but it’s the best route to go. We experience it in our families most. Satan LOVES to break up the home.

So how do we go about this? We need to admit how we feel, Ephesians 4:25-26 (NLT) Stop telling lies. Let us tell our neighbors the truth, for we are all parts of the same body, don’t sin by letting anger control you. Don’t let the sun go down while you are still angry”. Understand your anger, Proverbs 14:29 (NLT) “People with understanding control their anger: a hot temper shows great foolishness”.

Deal with it and control it. Proverbs 29:11 “Fools give full vent to their rage, but the wise bring calm in the end”. Realize what the cost is! Proverbs 14:17a “A quick-tempered person does foolish things”. Reflect before reacting! James 1:19 says everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry.
