Ecumenical Thanksgiving Service – November 21, 7pm
First Church has been invited to join our neighbors, Holy Trinity Lutheran Church and Wesley Temple AME Zion Church, for their annual Thanksgiving Service. This year, that worship service will be at 7pm on Tuesday, November 21, at Holy Trinity, 50 N Prospect St, Akron, OH 44304. The Rev. Dr. Charles Tyler from Wesley Temple will be preaching. Holy Trinity’s Senior Pastor David Nevergall writes: “Perhaps this could be the first of many opportunities for shared work and witness. I am hopeful. And thank you for considering our invitation.”
