[MONTICELLO] – An Ecumenical Thanksgiving Service will be held on Sunday, November 20 at 7:00 p.m. in the First Baptist Church of Monticello. The service is sponsored by the Monticello Interfaith Council, which includes representatives of religious and service organizations.
The service will include scripture readings, hymns and prayers by representatives of several churches in the village. The Rev. John Thomason, pastor of the United Methodist Church of Monticello, will give a sermon on the religious meaning of a holiday. An offering of canned goods and donations will be collected for the homeless. Light refreshments will be available during a time of fellowship after the service.
“With the rebirth of Broadway, it’s good to see the religious community reestablishing the traditional Thanksgiving service, which has been held for many years until it lapsed recently,” said the Rev. Thomason, “A community has much for which to give thanks, when many religious faiths can share a service together.”
COMMUNITY THANKSGIVING DINNER
The council is also supporting the Community Thanksgiving Dinner on Saturday, November 19 starting at 12:00 noon at the Ted Stroebele Recreation Center in Monticello. The dinner is sponsored by the Community Progressive Response (CPR) and several village churches and organizations.
The Monticello Interfaith Council meets regularly on the second Wednesday of each month at 10:00 a.m. in the Ted Stroebele Center in Monticello. All people of faith are invited to attend.
