Money offered at service will aid Community Relief

GLASGOW — The Glasgow Area Ministerial Association is sponsoring and leading a community Thanksgiving service, beginning at 4 p.m. Sunday.

A welcome from the Rev. Doug Stilwell, pastor of First United Methodist Church, which is hosting the service, will be followed by responsive readings, prayer, singing and a scripture sermon.

Bob Cooper, a member of GAMA and pastor of Faith United Methodist Church and East Main UMC, coordinated the program in which half a dozen local ministers have at least a brief role.

“Thanksgiving is a tradition where families come together; therefore, it's important to have a community Thanksgiving service where people of different faiths come together to share the abundance of our religious community,” he said. “I think it's an exciting time of shared ministries – worshipping God and helping people.”

Although the service is not meant to be a fundraiser, per se, the offerings collected will go to the Community Relief Fund, which helps with food and other resources for less fortunate members of the community.

“The people of Glasgow are generous people,” Cooper said. “When needs present themselves, the community finds a way to pull together and fulfill that need. The Thanksgiving service reminds us of the way God has blessed us, so we in turn can be aware of others' needs to reach out to them.”
