A Thanksgiving community worship and praise service is planned for 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 22.
The event, sponsored by the LaRue County Ministerial Association, will be held in First Baptist Church Hodgenville at 730 Tonieville Road.
“This wonderful gathering is a time for fellowship and community worship in giving thanks to our creator and savior and giving thanks for our great community,” said Jenn Mayfield, one of the service’s organizers.
Groups from several churches, including the choir of First Baptist Church of Hodgenville, Our Lady of Mercy Choir, Mount Moriah Baptist Church Creative Ministries Team and Family Worship Center Praise and Worship Team, will offer singing, human video and praise music.
A human video is a form of theater combining music, dance and drama, Mayfield said.
Family Worship Center Pastor Mark Knight will bring the message.
There is no charge to attend, however, donations will be accepted for the LaRue County Jail Ministry.
Funds will be used to purchase Bibles and personal hygiene products for inmates and transportation for released inmates. Mayfield said inmates from other states may lack money to return home. The jail ministry provides a bus ticket to their home. David Wortham will speak about the jail ministry.
The LCMA also is collecting canned goods for the Mount Moriah Creative Ministries’ “Help Me Help Others” food basket program. The youth provide food baskets at Thanksgiving and Christmas to needy families.
The event is expected to last about two hours.
