Please join us for our Virtual Thanksgiving Service.

Our Thanksgiving morning service is one of our favorites of the year. It includes some brief readings on the subject of Thanksgiving from the Bible and Science and Health, musical selections and hymns, and time for sharing gratitude with others. It's a wonderful way to honor the holiday's true significance.

This year we are unable to hold our normal gathering in the church, but will be broadcasting from our church, live streaming our readings and musicians. Testimonies of gratitude through Zoom are encouraged - please don't be shy about turning on your videocamera when testifying if you are able!
