Thankful Thursday - Church

1 Corinthians 12:27-30 Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it. And in the church God has appointed first of all apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then workers of miracles, also those having gifts of healing, those able to help others, those with gifts of administration, and those speaking in different kinds of tongues.....


Thank you Lord for Hope Chapel, the home church you have placed me in...thank you for this wonderful place where I can worship you, learn about you, serve you, and fellowship with other believers who love you...

Thank you for our pastors, elders, staff and interns. For their commitment, for their servant heart, and for their integrity. Thank you that they look up to you...and they consult you on any decisions they make for the church. Thank you for the talents and gifts you have given them, and how they are using those gifts for your glory....

Thank you for the Children's Ministry workers, for their sacrificial giving...the giving of their time on Fridays and Sundays so that our kids will have a safe place to go and learn about God, while we worship in the sanctuary...

Thank you for the Prayer Warriors at Hope. They are the backbone of our church...

Thank you Lord for the contemporary worship with have at Hope. For the worship leaders who lead us to "your throne" each Sunday...each Services...

Thank you for all the ministries and ministry workers... they are too many to mention here one by one...but Lord, you know each one of them....

Thank you Lord....
