Dear family in Christ
As we gather today for our church 135th anniversary service and celebratory lunch, we have so much to be thankful for as we reflect on God’s grace and faithfulness over the years. Psalm 100 is a wonderful psalm of thanksgiving unto the Lord for reflection on such a special occasion.
- Let us make a joyful noise unto the Lord and come into his presence with glad singing (v1-2).
- Let us unite as the created people of God and grow in our relationship with our Abba Father (v3).
- Let us give thanks to God with grateful hearts and bless his holy name (v4).
Like the psalmist, may we rejoice always, “For the Lord is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations.” (v5)
May the community of St John’s Chapel continue to grow in unity and purpose for the kingdom of God and the glory of God.
