Tenth Annual Interfaith Thanksgiving Service

"Feeding Bodies, Filling Spirits"

Logan Tabernacle
     Cache Community Connections is a civic and interfaith council in Cache Valley. Cache Community Connections is a group of local religious, civic, and community leaders in the valley who first came together to organize an interfaith memorial service following the tragic events on September 11, 2001.  Working together was such a positive experience that the group agreed to continue meeting monthly to foster understanding and cooperation among all religious groups in Cache Valley.  This is the tenth annual Thanksgiving service in Cache Valley.  

     Thanksgiving, a holiday that belongs to all Americans, offers a wonderful opportunity to listen and learn, hearing the diverse voices of our valley giving thanks as one community.  We offer our sincere thanks to all the participating faith communities, groups, and individuals who make this celebration a special one.

     The theme for this year's Thanksgiving service is “Feeding Bodies, Filling Spirits”.  We are reminded that there are many within our community and beyond who continue to experience the lack of adequate nutrition—for body and for spirit.  During this year’s Thanksgiving service, we will hear messages of word and music addressing the theme.  

     Our community has recently collaborated in an effort to support the construction of a new building for the Cache Community Food Pantry.  Persons from all walks of life, all faith traditions, and all political persuasions have collaborated to make this valuable resource more accessible and more useful.  We will give thanks for the generosity of a community and celebrate our capacity to work together for our common benefit.

The Concert and Lecture Series is sponsored by  Cache Community Connections and is sponsored in part by the RAPZ TAX and the Cache Valley Radio Group .  The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints allows free use of the tabernacle, as well as providing financial support.
