Thanksgiving at Emmanuel

Three sisters

Join us for a traditional Service of Thanksgiving at 10:00 AM on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday 27 November 2014. In recent years we have emphasized the generosity of the Native Americans whose sharing of their technology — such as the “three sisters” growing of corn, beans and squash together, pictured above — was crucial to the permanent establishment of the first New England colonies. Over the years we have featured prayers and reflections from various tribal traditions and incorporated them into our own prayers.

This year the weather seems iffy, with snow and wintry mix forecast for Wednesday. If the service needs to be cancelled on Thursday for whatever reason, you will find an update on this page, and also a message on the church’s telephone answering machine.
