Woodbury Community Thanksgiving Worship

For more than 30 years on Thanksgiving Eve, the Woodbury Area Clergy Organization (WACO) has hosted a service that brings together many different Christian denominations and expressions. There are readings from scripture, songs of thanksgiving, a message for adults, a time for children, and prayers. The hour-long service is a joyous celebration of unity—a great opportunity for people of many backgrounds to give thanks to God for all that He has given us.
