 It All Began With God

Thankful for the Little Things?

            It’s hard to believe that the Thanksgiving holiday is fast approaching. The temperature is gradually falling and the leaves are turning. Thanksgiving is often a time when we look back at the many blessings God has showered upon us, blessings such as good health, loving family, food, shelter, and the list can go on and on. Let’s turn our attention now to our spiritual life. Do we consider our time to gather in God’s house to hear his Word as a blessing or a burden? Each week four services along with various Bible classes are offered to help strengthen our faith. So often the devil and our sinful nature get in the way of the one thing needful. In our chapel devotions this year we are concentrating on various questions/lies Satan sends out to make us have doubts, realizing God has an answer to all his lies.

Here at St. Paul, your child(ren) have the wonderful blessing of daily growing in their faith through devotions, Bible lessons, and prayers taught to them by dedicated teachers and pastors. I pray that all families realize the blessings we have here at this school and the many opportunities we offer to grow in your faith.

  Have a very blessed Thanksgiving!
