Interfaith Thanksgiving Service Experience

Sunday, November 14, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Beth Israel and First United Methodist Church will join together for the 41st Annual Interfaith Thanksgiving Service on Sunday, November 14, at 4:00 p.m. This year First United is hosting the service (2111 Camino del Rio South, San Diego, CA US 92108). Senior Rabbi Jason Nevarez will deliver the Thanksgiving message, and the Zimriyah Chorale and the Chancel Choir (First United) and youth choir from both congregations will participate.

A FREE catered community meal follows on the First Church Plaza as an opportunity for us to reconnect with one another. Please RSVP below by November 3rd.

During our fellowship, we invite you to participate in a collective painting project. We’ve commissioned muralist Mara Cook to design a mural of appreciation for Father Joe’s Village that we can paint together under her direction.

Free childcare will be available during the event. Call the church office in advance 619-297-4366.

We will be collecting food at the Thanksgiving Interfaith service to benefit the Wesley United Methodist Church’s Food Ministry. You will find drop-off barrels located below the Sanctuary and on the Plaza.

Suggested items include Dried mashed potatoes • Canned corn • Canned peas or peas & carrots • Corn bread or other bread mix • Stuffing • Gravy • Cranberry sauce • 1 lb. rice • 1 lb. beans/lentils • Chicken broth • Canned fruit (please, no plastic cups – they break!) • Dessert mix (brownies or cookies) • Donations of new, sturdy, empty reusable grocery bags with handles

Please note that no RSVP is needed to attend the service at 4 PM. This RSVP applies only if you plan to partake in the meal following the service.
