As Thanksgiving draws near, people of different denominations have the opportunity to gather together for a special worship service this weekend.
On Sunday, the Albertville Ministerial Fellowship, in conjunction with several local churches, is hosting its annual Community Thanksgiving Service at Albertville First Baptist Church.
“I’ve been in Albertville for about 25 or 26 years and I know they’ve been doing this since before I ever got here,” Chip Warren, past president of the Albertville Ministerial Fellowship, said. “I enjoy it so much because not only is the thanksgiving aspect of it a good time, but we get to come together with people that we don’t normally get to see and worship with … It’s a great opportunity for our community to gather together.”
Everyone is invited to attend, Warren said. The service would begin at 6 p.m. with music led by Albertville First Baptist. The Rev. Mark Adam, of Albertville First United Methodist Church, will bring the message.
During the service, Warren said a special offering would be taken up for the Albertville Ministerial Fellowship’s “Good Samaritan Fund.” The fund is used to help the poor and needy in the community.
