Fellowship Family,
Happy Friday! I pray your Thanksgiving holiday was filled with food, family, and friends and everything else that makes Thanksgiving wonderful. Among my many blessings, I count Fellowship Presbyterian Church and each one of you in the congregation near the top of my list. I am grateful for all of the ways you "show up" for each other, our surrounding neighborhoods, and the city of Greensboro. I look forward to all of the ways we will continue to learn and grow as we live up to our vision statement: 

"Fellowship Presbyterian Church's ministries proclaim God’s love
• Worship and study,
• Service in the community, and 
• Kindness and grace towards all"
I am excited to be in the pulpit again on Sunday as we mark the beginning of a new church year and the season of Advent. I don't know about you, but I love the decoration and the preparation for the holidays and that's what Advent is all about- preparing for the coming Messiah Jesus Christ into our world. This Advent, we will be preaching a sermon series entitled "A Cinematic Christmas" where we take a look at popular Christmas movies and TV shows, and the lessons they have to teach us about our faith. This Sunday, we'll take a look at the 2004 classic 'The Polar Express" starring Tom Hanks. 
See you Sunday!
