Now Thank We All Our God

Thanksgiving Eve Worship Service

Wednesday, November 24, 7:00 p.m. at MLLC, in the Sanctuary.

This is a joint event with our partner churches in Crossroads Shared Lutheran Ministry.  The four churches of our ELCA cooperative ministry are:  Bethlehem – Round Top, St. Paul – Shelby (Fayetteville), and Waldeck – Ledbetter.

All are welcome at our special time of thanksgiving.  Our Celebration will include Holy Communion.

During this service we set a tone of prayer and thanks to God as we head into our national day of Thanksgiving.

This year is the estimated 400th Anniversary of the Pilgrims’ Thanksgiving meal at Plymouth, Massachusetts.
