56th Annual Nu'uanu Valley Interfaith Thanksgiving Celebration

 

Date:  Tuesday, November 21, 2017

Time:  7:00 p.m.

Place:  Harris United Methodist Church, 20 S. Vineyard Boulevard, Honolulu

 

"We Choose Love"  hosted by Harris UMC Tuesday, November 21st

6:00 p.m. - Information table of different non-profit organizations

7:00 p.m. - Thanksgiving celebration in the Sanctuary

 

The Celebration will include a youth presentation which has been the planning team's vision in recent years to  engage and offer our youth the opportunity to make friends and share ideas from their faith perspective as they plan their presentation.  Our Harris youth are hosting these planning sessions this year.  Pacific Voices, coordinated by Innocenta Sound-Kikku, will dance "Love in Any Language".  And the Interfaith Choir, led by Jordan Goto, will sing "I Choose Love".  The newly formed Legal Clinic at First UMC will be the recipient of our love offering.  At 6:00 p.m. before and after the Celebration, we will have a "We Choose Love Market" surrounding the courtyard.  This will include several non-profit organizations who will have tables/displays and individuals available to give information on their mission.  Let us all join together in welcoming the interfaith community in our midst.  Plan to attend and invite others!  Donations of finger food are welcome for the fellowship time at the conclusion of the celebration.  Please drop off your goodies in the kitchen before the service.
