Happy Blessed Thanksgiving Everyone! We have so much to be “Thankful” for!
Wesley Ray UMC:
*Worship Service was held in the sanctuary on November 14th, after a period of parking lot worship services due to covid19 precautions. Pastor Terrence August’s message came from Psalm 92:12-15. He challenged us to consider how God’s Grace is active in our lives, on a daily basis. Rev. August encouraged us all to be Thankful for God’s Grace. Also during the service, Sis. August recognized and saluted the veterans for their service to our country, in keeping with the Veteran’s Day Holiday Celebration.
