As Thanksgiving approaches, we wish to express our profound gratitude for each one of you who form the heart of our First United Methodist Church of Allen family. Your unwavering dedication, compassion, and commitment to serving our community resonate deeply within our congregation and beyond.
In this time of reflection, we are profoundly thankful for the spirit of harmony that binds us together. Your collective efforts and prayers have fostered a sanctuary of peace, acceptance, and inclusivity. Through your open hearts and helping hands, we’ve extended warmth and solace to those in need, embodying the teachings of Christ.
We are deeply moved by the countless ways you have embraced change and adaptation, especially during challenging times. Your resilience and willingness to stand together, whether in times of joy or adversity, exemplify the true essence of your devotion to one another. You’ve shown that our unity goes beyond the walls of our church, touching lives throughout Collin County and beyond. Your willingness to serve, whether through acts of kindness, outreach programs, or lending a listening ear, inspires us all to be better individuals.
Today, we express our deepest thanks for your unwavering support and generosity. Each of you contribute a unique thread to the beautiful tapestry of our church.
As we gather with family and friends to celebrate this coming week, let us carry the spirit of the season forward as we move into a new year. May our faith continue to guide us, and may the love we extend to one another be a beacon of hope and inspiration for the world.
With hearts full of prayers and thanksgiving for each of you,
Your FUMC Allen Staff
