Jesse Lee to host Thanksgiving interfaith service Nov. 20

The annual Thanksgiving interfaith service will be offered on Tuesday Nov. 20, at Jesse Lee Memorial United Methodist Church located at 207 Main Street.

This years’ service will begin at 7:15 and will include musical contributions from the Ridgefield High School Chamber Orchestra, the Ridgefield Choral, and the Jesse Lee Hand Bell Choir.

Selectwoman Barbara Manners will read the Thanksgiving proclamation and clergy from throughout the town will lead in this time of worship.

Rev. Beth Anderson from St. Andrews Lutheran Church will bring the sermon. A special offering will be collected in support of the Ridgefield Food Pantry and the Association of Religious Communities.

Attendees are also encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item for donation to the food pantry. The theme of this year’s clergy association is to foster compassionate community. All are welcome.
