The Bible’s Thanksgiving Celebration
As we prepare for Thanksgiving, it’s a great time to recognize the biblical holiday God gave His people to remember and celebrate His faithfulness. Sukkot is a week-long harvest celebration in the Bible, and a time to thank Him for His provision. To learn more about this holiday, how it connects with Thanksgiving, and what you can do to celebrate with your family and friends, check out the CrossRoads Core blog (https://core.crossroadschurch.ca) and the CrossRoads Facebook page.
