Thanksgiving Thank You Notes

Internet technology has made it easier than ever to send a quick message to someone. You can email, text, IM (instant message), send an e-card, or even send a private message through forums or a social networking site. As easy as it is, how often do we take advantage of these technologies to thank the people who have made a difference in our lives? If you’re like me, not enough.

As we continue our focus on giving thanks here at OurChurch.Com, let me tell you how with just one minute a day you can join us in expressing gratitude with 1 x 10 x 100 Thanksgiving Thank You Notes. More...

We try to give our support staff as much family time as possible around the holidays. As a result, Thanksgiving day there will be no phone support. The day after Thanksgiving there will be no live phone support but we will respond to voicemail. Help desk and email support will be available both days, but response times may be longer than on a typical business day.
