Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.
 Psalm 100:4
Cokesbury's Thanksgiving Potluck was a fantastic time of fellowship and good eating. As I sat and enjoyed my 3rd helping of sweet potato casserole, I observed the room. Asbury Place was full of people for whom to be thankful. This church community is kind and serves with hearts full of love for others. We have much to be grateful for this Thanksgiving season. New relationships can lead us into more profound devotion to God, new opportunities to serve this Pensacola community, and new mercies daily to reflect upon as we grow our faith. Most importantly, we are thankful for God's son and his life, death, and resurrection.
Colossians 3:15-17 says:
15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. 16 Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts.17 And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
The journey of discipleship starts with ourselves and our devotion to prayer and studying God's word. We must enter into his presence "with gratitude in your hearts." Therefore, we must be vigilant in our study so that "whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him." Remember as you go throughout your day to be grateful for Jesus' sacrifice for us, allowing us to enter into a relationship with God. Be thankful for his Holy Spirit to guide us and lead us to a more intimate faith. We are most grateful for that, especially in the season of giving thanks.

Thank you, Jay Pasicznyk
Over the last few years, many selfless servants have shared their gifts and graces with Cokesbury Church. But perhaps no one has been more instrumental in helping our church adjust to life post-Covid and post-hurricane than Jay Pasicznyk. Jay’s knowledge of technology has been invaluable to us as our church has navigated life through Zoom and other forms of communication and technology.
We are sad to announce that Jay will be moving from the area and taking another position of employment in December. His last Sunday with us will be November 27th, as his new position will begin in December. Please make a point to call Jay or see him personally to express your appreciation for all he has done. We wish him God’s blessings and offer our prayers for him in this new chapter of his life.
