Join us as we come together in peace and community at Thanksgiving to reflect on gratitude and compassion.
For more than a quarter of a century, this annual gathering has brought together people of many faith traditions. The service may include choirs and participants from the Bahá’í, Buddhist, Roman Catholic, Center for Spiritual Living, The Church of Jesus Chris of Latter-day Saints, Jewish, Muslim, Protestant, Sufi, and Unitarian Universalist faith traditions.
A reception and fellowship time will follow the service. For more information please call (253) 426-1506 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Interfaith Drop-In Choir
This interfaith choir is open to all participants who would like to gather the day of the event, quickly practice and learn the song, and then sing at the Thanksgiving Gathering with friends, new and old! Plan to arrive at 6:00 for a run-through of the song as an interfaith choir. No need to sign up or RSVP. Just show up the night of the event at 6:00 for a quick practice ahead of the service!
This year's group song will be "We are Marching" (Siyahamba/Caminado). If you would like to practice this song prior to the gathering on November 20th, feel free to download the sheet music here. We will be singing this song in English, Swahili and Spanish. Lyrics in all three languages is available here.
