Happy Thanksgiving, Resurrection West!

In the spirit of gratitude, I want to say thank you for being the incredible church community that has welcomed me and my family this past year. I’m grateful for how you welcome everyone, how you live out your faith through service, and how you seek to grow in your own faith. What are you grateful for this week?

We were fortunate to have a video crew at West this past Sunday to capture a bit of what worship looks like. For those of you who haven’t been back yet since covid and are wondering what it looks like, check this out – how cool is that!?

I know it’s Thanksgiving week, but I won’t have another chance to connect with you before this coming Sunday, when we will commence Advent festivities! Advent is the liturgical (church) season of preparing for Christmas. We will have the church decorated beautifully, and have gourmet hot Cocoa stations and coffee, along with several ways to get you looking ahead to Christmas.

Scroll down to read more about some of these midweek opportunities to get in the Christmas spirit, like our Merry Little Christmas on December 4, our Caroling Blitz, and Open Table Dinner Groups. On Wednesday nights in December there will be a special online study to connect you with others during Advent and deepen our faith through conversations based on Pastor Adam’s book, “The Journey.” You can find the registration link at

I hope you have a delicious and delightful Thanksgiving. See you this Sunday!

Grace and Peace,
Pastor Bill
