Thanksgiving Service FAQs
How will this year be different?
This year we will start in various rooms throughout the church. KCs are paired together, and each KC pair will gather in an assigned room 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 one song. We will then serve food, eat together, share stories of thanksgiving, and watch Jason’s homily via livestream. See below for the full service schedule.
Will there be child care?
Nursery will be available for the whole service. Parents may fix a plate for their nursery-aged children. Children in Kindergarten through fourth grade will be dismissed after supper (5:45 p.m.) for an activity hour. Parents will pick up their children (WHERE) on their way to the Sanctuary for the final portion of the service.
