The members of churches in and around Thomson came together Sunday night to offer thanks to God.
Approximately 150 people from across McDuffie County attended a Community Thanksgiving Worship Service that focused on remembrance of the bounty that they have received and who made it possible.
“I thank the pastors for participating and for having their churches participate tonight,” said the Rev. John Barnes, pastor of First United Methodist Church, the host church for the Community Thanksgiving Worship Service. “Our community does not always gather together but I am glad that we are gathered together in worship tonight.”
With passages related to Thanksgiving or the Harvest, the audience was reminded time and time again that Jesus is the bread of life.
The people from a variety of faith traditions offered thanks for the providence that supplies all of their needs and also sang songs that proclaimed the beauty and honor of God’s love.
The Rev. Wilfred Bellamy, pastor of Thomson Presbyterian Church, provided the sermon on the worship service’s theme: “Give Thanks to the Lord for his love endures forever.”
