Clergy at 10 churches will participate in Thanksgiving service

The Harrison County Ministerial Association will hold its annual Community Thanksgiving Service on Sunday at 7 p.m. The Corydon Presbyterian Church, at 568 Highway 62 West, is the host church this year.
The Rev. Jeff Otto, the pastor at St. Peter’s and Gethsemane Lutheran churches, will deliver the message, said the Rev. Jeff Reed, pastor at Unity Chapel United Methodist Church near Ramsey who is the president of the ministerial association.
Clergy from about 10 Harrison County churches, including Catholic and Protestant, will participate in the service. Scripture readings will be in both English and Spanish, said CPC’s pastor, the Rev. Scott Hill.
An all-community choir, directed by Beth Bostock from CPC, will sing, as will a gospel quartet from St. Peter’s Lutheran Church.
Reed said the offering that night will assist victims of the Nov. 6 tornado that ripped through southwestern Indiana. The tornado killed 23, injured about 200, and destroyed or damaged hundreds of homes in Vanderburgh and Warrick counties.
Also, the ministerial association will collect non-perishable items to be distributed by Harrison County Community Services. Items needed include canned meat, soup, spaghetti, green beans, corn, dry cereal, peanut butter, jelly, macaroni and cheese, Jell-O pudding, cake mixes and juice.
Refreshments after the service will be provided by members of Corydon Presbyterian Church.
