People of faith in the Franklin community have a long-standing tradition of gathering annually for an Interfaith Thanksgiving worship service. Sponsored by the Franklin Interfaith Council, this year’s Thanksgiving Service will be held on Sunday evening, November 22 at 7 pm at Franklin Federated Church.

Thanksgiving Service and Prayer
The Interfaith Thanksgiving service is a shared celebration and remembrance for the blessings in our lives for which we are grateful. The service is a wonderful occasion for people of various faith backgrounds to come together as an interfaith community to give thanks for the goodness in our lives and express our gratitude for God’s blessings. 
The community gathers in worship to share some readings, reflections and prayers from Franklin’s clergy leaders and to enjoy special musical offerings by the Franklin Interfaith Choir. The service opens our eyes to the various faith communities within Franklin and reminds us of the religious freedom we enjoy in America. 
The event also provides the opportunity to support Franklin’s Fuel Assistance program administered by the Interfaith Council. A free-will offering will be received to fund this important resource to help Franklin families pay their heating bills during the winter months. 
As we express our thanks we also remember those within our community who are financially stressed and need a helping hand. Checks may be made payable to the Franklin Interfaith Council. Your generosity is encouraged! 
Join with your fellow Franklinites of faith on Sunday evening, November 22nd to give thanks with a grateful heart. Amen.
