The Paducah Cooperative Ministry (PCM) presents its 37th Annual Interfaith Community Thanksgiving Service this Sunday, November 20th at 6 p.m., at St. Thomas Catholic Church at 5645 Blandville Road in Paducah. The community is invited to attend.
The evening will reflect many of the different faiths practiced in Paducah, with included readings from Christian, Jewish and Muslim traditions; music from the Golden Echoes under the direction of Rev. Donna Hawkins (Macedonia Missionary Baptist) as well as from pianist Chris Beal, and words from Rev. Bradley Whistle (St. Thomas More), Rev. Sara Tate (Fountain Avenue United Methodist Church) and Rev. Jenna Goggins (First Presbyterian Church). Refreshments provided by St. Thomas More will be available in Parish Hall after the service.
Every year, PCM partners with one of its supporting congregations to host a special Thanksgiving program as a way of thanking the community. PCM Executive Director Heidi Suhrheinrich says this year’s timing couldn’t be better. “After such a hotly contested election, it’s even more important that we all focus on unity. We can all do so much more good when we work together,” she said. Suhrheinrich credited community support as one of the primary factors in PCM’s longevity of service.
