Community Festival of Praise & Thanksgiving - Sanctuary

Thanksgiving

Invite your neighbors and friends to attend this 43rd annual service of thanks that brings our community together. This is truly a faith-filled experience for all families.

Pastors from the Buffalo area churches join to give leadership to this community-wide time of worship. Musicians from many churches are expected to participate. Choirs will combine to present anthems of thanks and praise with organ and brass, and handbell choirs are preparing pieces to be rung in a massed choir.

KRWC Radio (AM 1360) will once again broadcast the Festival of Praise and Thanksgiving live on November 22, and will re-broadcast the service on Thanksgiving Day at 11am.

Nursery is provided. Offerings are used to help those in need through the Buffalo Ministerial Association.

Singers interested in joining the large vocal choir made up of singers from area churches are invited to rehearsals (TBA)
