Join Associated Ministries and representatives from Pierce County’s richly diverse community of faith traditions for the Annual Interfaith Thanksgiving Gathering at 7:00 pm, Tuesday, November 24. The theme for the evening is Uniting in Thanksgiving. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is this year’s host congregation. The gathering will take place in their building at 1102 South Pearl Street in Tacoma.
A Pierce County tradition for more than 33 years, the Interfaith Thanksgiving Gathering celebrates both unity as God’s people and diversity of religious traditions. The gathering will include participants from Bahá’í, Buddhist, Catholic, Center for Spiritual Living, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Jewish, Muslim, Native American, Protestant, Sufi, Unitarian Universalist and other faith traditions.
“We of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints are honored to be hosting this year’s Thanksgiving Interfaith Gathering of Gratitude,” said Dr. William Parker. “This Gathering is open to anyone and everyone in the greater Tacoma area. It is a special time when various faiths in Tacoma come together and present a program of music and spoken word expressing gratitude for all the blessings of this earth. We are joining together to let everyone know that all faiths are here to serve everyone, especially those less fortunate who need a helping hand.”
“Over the years Associated Ministries has been able to serve many people in need in our community by partnering with people of faith and people of good will,” shared Mike Yoder, Executive Director of AM. “We’re honored to organize this annual interfaith gathering to unite people of faith in a time of thanksgiving for the blessings we have received and to renew our commitment to love our neighbors as ourselves.”
Refreshments and fellowship time will follow the service.
