November, 2019 Newsletter

From the Pastor…

Happy November!

It is amazing how October has come and gone.  My family and I want to thank you for welcoming us.  It has been such a blessing to be able to meet so many of you.  We are excited about what God is doing and is going to do here at Whitelaw Avenue. 

November brings upon us a time of Thanksgiving.  We all have so many things for which to be thankful. I am thankful for a congregation that loves on people and wants to make an impact upon the community.  Tuesday, November 26th we will have our Thanksgiving service.  I am excited to have the opportunity to come together as a family and worship and give thanks to God for all that he has done and is going to do.  Please make plans to join us and think of someone that you can invite. 

Who’s Your One?  This will be an opportunity for you to begin to think about someone that you can invite to church and begin to invest time with.  We will be going through a series that will challenge us to answer the question…Who’s your one?  I pray that God will reveal that person (if He hasn’t already) and to have boldness to invest into our one.  Starting November 10th, you will see more information about this as we begin our series.

~ Pastor Allen Thomas


The seniors will meet on Thursday, November 21st at 6:00 pm at Castelli’s Moonlight Restaurant in Alton.  Anyone age 55 and up is welcome to attend.

Thank You…

Dear Church Family,

Thank you so much for all of your prayers, cards and emotional support these last several months.  My life has been a struggle waiting for the surgery, then the healing.  I have learned that God has put people in my pathway to help me along the way.  Thank you for being there, most of all thank you for the love and for being my church family. 

I love you all!

Kathy Croxton
