Thanksgiving Baskets: Thank you!

“Oh my gosh!!! How did you guys lift that thing? I hope you used a dolly. Thank you so much. The kids just squealed, ‘we got blessed!’ and I said, ‘yes, we did!’”

Comments from a Thanksgiving Basket recipient

Jesus tells us that those who have been forgiven much love much. As sinners redeemed by His shed blood, we all have cause to love much.  As we grow in love for God, we also learn to love others as He does.

This is a hearty ‘Thank you’ to all Christ Community Chapel members and friends who donated, at last count, contents to fill 1,408 Thanksgiving baskets. With more baskets still coming in.

That is 12 tons of turkeys. A tidal wave of turkeys. A tsunami of Thanksgiving tubs.  A glimpse of how high and wide and long and deep is God’s love.

Your love in action shows authentic appreciation for the grace of God.  It also mirrors the love Jesus Christ has for the less fortunate of our neighbors.

Because of your godly generosity, over 1,400 recipients have seen visible, tangible, hefty, satisfying and tasty evidence of God’s love for them.

And people are testifying to His goodness and glory.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever!

1 Chronicles 16:4
