Dear Friends,
     There are more than 10,000 reasons to give thanks, Based on Psalm 103:1 "Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless God's holy name!" When you stop to think about it, we could easily list 10,000 reasons to give thanks for God in our lives--our families, our friends, our homes, all the big and small blessings that are a part of our everyday lives. Additionally, there are incredible blessings in our life together as church as well.
     This is an exciting time for DLUMC. Each week people are finding hope and comfort for everyday living. People are discovering faith in Jesus Christ for the first time. Others are coming back to church for the first time in decades and finding meaning and purpose for their lives. New leaders are stepping up to lead our children, youth, and adult programs. Over the past few years, DLUMC has grown to be the largest church in the North Star District, and one of the larger churches in the Minnesota Conference. DLUMC is reaching more people each week than ever before--we are one of a few churches that can say we are larger today than we were 40 years ago; God is at work in our midst!
     This October we will be celebrating our 10,000 reasons to give thanks to God in worship and considering how we can support God's work in and through our church through giving our time, talents, and our financial treasure. Everything that happens here depends upon each of us giving generously. What are your reasons to give thanks to God? I look forward to sharing our reasons as we continue to grow to be people God has created us to be!
