While Thanksgiving is not a typical religious holiday. Many, if not most people, when they think of giving thanks, think of thanks to their creator God.
Thus, many area churches hold special Thanksgiving worship services. (A complete list of those reported to the Sentinel-Tribune will be published next Friday.)
Among the programs will be a community service organized by the Bowling Green Ministerial Association; another community worship in Haskins, and a joint service in rural Bowling Green.
• The Bowling Green service is set for Nov. 24 at the First Presbyterian Church of Bowling Green at 7 p.m.
Two community choirs will offer anthems. An adult choir will gather to rehearse at 5 p.m. Sunday, with everyone in the community invited to join in. An additional feature will be a community children/youth choir, which will rehearse at 4:15 p.m. on Sunday. All children/youth up through junior high are welcome. Both rehearsals will be at the Presbyterian Church. The Presbyterian church choir will also offer an anthem, and all children attending will be invited to participate in a special musical children's moment during the service.
The Nov. 24 service will show the intergenerational nature of area churches, as well as the unique role music plays in Thanksgiving worship. The liturgy will be led by teams of all ages from several different churches, with children playing significant roles.
The Thanksgiving meditation will be offered by Deacon James Cavera of St. Aloysius Roman Catholic Church.
Those attending are invited to bring canned goods for the Bowling Green Christian Food Pantry, and an offering will be received to benefit that organization as well. The service is sponsored by the Bowling Green Ministerial Association.
• Haskins Community Church will host the Community Thanksgiving Eve service in association with St. Paul Lutheran Church. The service will be held on Nov. 27 at 7 p.m. The public is invited.
Rev. Jim Paulsen of St. Paul, will deliver the sermon, and choirs from both churches will lead the worship in song.
An offering will be collected for the Otsego Food Pantry.
Following worship, those attending will share in a reception of warm cider and pie.
• There will be another Thanksgiving service in rural Bowling Green on Nov. 24 at Cloverdale United Methodist Church at 7 p.m. This will be a joint service with Hope Lutheran Church.
