thanksgivingWorship
On Thursday, November 27 at 10:00 a.m., a Service of the Word will be held in the nave. The service will include traditional Thanksgiving hymns, a sermon, and a Litany of Thanksgiving. All are welcome. Casual attire is encouraged.

Dinner at Christ the King Church
Grandma comes to the parish hall – and you don’t even have to drive “over the river and through the woods”– for Thanksgiving Dinner! Paul and Marie Monroe have graciously volunteered to prepare turkey & dressing for a family-style Thanksgiving Day dinner in the parish hall. Any students who aren’t going home, young adults without plans, and all adults without family in town are invited to join them. If you would like, you may bring a covered dish to share (salad, vegetable, bread, dessert, fancy drinks, etc.). For an accurate count, please notify Beverly Davis. However, if you don’t sign up, you are still welcome: everyone will eat their fill and we’ll have baskets of food left over. Thanksgiving dinner will begin around 11:30 a.m. and run until the turkey tryptophan kicks in.
