The Haddonfield Council of Churches continues the new tradition of holding the Community Ecumenical Thanksgiving Worship on the Sunday before Thanksgiving and will host this year’s worship on Sunday, November 19, at Grace Episcopal Church. The worship begins at 7:30 PM (NOTE: Haddonfield Community Calendar lists incorrect time) and the freewill donation will again go toward the Feed My Starving Children Mobile Pack fundraising goal of over $100,000. Given the hectic schedules many families experience on the eve of Thanksgiving the Council agreed to change the date to the Sunday before Thanksgiving in the hopes more Haddonfield families would be able to attend, as well as, begin rotating the site for the worship.
This year’s worship will be held at Grace Episcopal Church located on King’s Highway in honor of their 175th Anniversary. The worship begins at 7:30 and will be led by worship leaders and representatives from the various member congregations in Haddonfield. A combined choir will also provide an anthem and leadership in the congregation song. The Free Will Offering received that night will go toward the Feed My Starving Children Mobile Pack Event planned for April 20-22 of 2018. There is a $120,000 fundraising goal needed to pack a shipping container of the half a million meal goal. For more information please contact Pastor Wayne Zschech (429-5122) or the church office.
