From The Trussville Tribune staff reports
TRUSSVILLE — First Baptist Church Trussville is inviting the community to a special Thanksgiving service on Sunday, Nov. 24.
Pastor Derrick Jordan, from Hope Everlasting Ministries (HEM), will deliver a message and the Hewitt-Trussville High School Chamber Choir will be the musical guest for the evening.
Hope Garrett, with public relations for the church, said the public, including people from all denominations, are invited.
“We just like to make sure that no matter what we do, we act as a community center,” said Garrett. “We want it to be a good place for people to meet and learn more about the Lord.”
Garrett said several area churches have already signed on to join in on the service.
“It’s always about how we can get people closer to Jesus and how we can get people closer to community,” she said.
The service begins at 6:30 p.m. at the First Baptist Church Trussville Worship Center.
There is no cost for the service, but people are invited to bring non-perishable food items or offerings for T.E.A.M. (Trussville Ecumenical Assistive Ministry).
First Baptist Church Trussville will also have a Christmas Festival on Dec. 14, which will include food trucks, crafts, a movie and fellowship.
