Thanksgiving Service

November 12, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join us on Sunday, November 12, 5–7 p.m. for our annual Thanksgiving service. Keep reading for specific details on where to go, what to bring, and how the evening will flow. 




How will our service be structured?

This year will be similar to last year’s Thanksgiving Service, with just a few changes. We will start in various rooms throughout the church. KCs are paired together, and each KC pair will gather in an assigned area for supper and the majority of the service. See below for room assignments. 

At 6:45 p.m., all KCs will be dismissed to gather in the Sanctuary to celebrate the Lord’s Supper together. 

As in other years, our service will begin promptly at 5:00 p.m. with a Welcome, Call to Worship, and a song. We will then serve food, eat together, and share stories of thanksgiving. See below for the full service schedule. 


Will there be child care? 

Nursery (infants through age 4) will be available for the whole service. Parents may fix a plate for their nursery-aged children. Children in Kindergarten/age 5 and above will participate in the service with their families. There will be no children’s activities. 


Where should I go?

  • Genesis + Tapestry gather in Rooms 101-102
  • Mosaic + Crossroads gather in the Worship Hall
  • Covenant + Common Ground gather in Overlook Rm #214
  • Cornerstone + Sojourners gather in the FSM space

What do I need to bring?  

  • If your last name begins with A-F, bring a homemade dessert (enough to serve 12).
  • If your last name begins with the letter G-Z, bring a homemade side (enough to serve 12 people) to be served alongside the BBQ and chicken fingers that the church is providing.


What should I bring my food item in? Do I need to bring serving utensils as well?

Bring all food items in a disposable dish with disposable serving utensils.

In order to make sure none of your items are lost and to help us in serving, we’re asking everyone to bring and serve food with disposable items.

If your items are not disposable, please make sure that your name is on the dish. 


Where should I bring my food on Sunday night?

Bring your food to your assigned room and drop it at the food table.


Can I reheat my food at the church?

We have limited oven capacity; please bring your food ready to eat.
