It is with great sadness that we have to inform the community that the Thanksgiving Meal at First Presbyterian Church of Sibley, IA on Thursday November 26, 2020 will be cancelled this year. Although we cannot all meet in person, we encourage everyone to show God’s second greatest commandment, “Love you neighbor as yourself.” Don’t only check in with your loved ones and family members, but call your neighbors, send some food over to those you know will be by themselves, send a card, and most importantly pray.
It is easy to get discouraged but hard to bring ourselves back up. Although we can feel down, worried and upset with all that is going on in the world we still need to remember the blessings we have every day. Did you wiggle your toes this morning? Was there food in your house? Clothes to wear? A job to work at? Blessings can be found all around us, even when we think only sorrow is surrounding us. Let go of your own control and hold on to God.
We want to wish everyone a safe and happy Thanksgiving. We are excited to see all the unique and special ways you celebrated Thanksgiving this year. God Bless!
