Bulletin Notes

Laura Zurn has taken on the weekly task of creating our church bulletin, and over the next weeks and months please look to this page for information gathered from those bulletins. We can’t thank Laura enough for all she does! We hope you will join us for worship and to meet Laura, and all of us at Jewett City Baptist Church.

Thank you, God, For Everything

Thank you, God, for everything

the big things and the small

For every good gift comes from God,

the Giver of them all.

And all too often we accept,

without any thanks or praise,

The gifts God sends as blessings

each day in many ways.

And so at this time we offer up a prayer

To thank You, God, for giving us

a lot more than our share.

First, thank You for the little things

that often come our way—

The things we take for granted

and don’t mention when we pray—

Oh, make us more aware, dear God,

of little daily graces

That come to us with sweet surprise

from never-dreamed-of places…

And help us to remember that

the key to life and living

Is to make each prayer a prayer of thanks

and every day Thanksgiving.
