Interfaith Thanksgiving Event, November 13

Steve Tompkins will be representing Beth Tikvah in the Service following the Dinner.   

To attend the dinner, you must RSVP on the 2nd Presbyterian website  and click on “event details”.   (If you just want to attend the service, you do not need to RSVP.)

Wednesday, November 13
6pm Dinner
7pm Service

Plan now to bring your congregation to this inspirational and educational community-building evening.

  • The traditional delicious Thanksgiving meal will be catered by Carlisle’s own Chef Exclusive ($10 adults/$5 kids). Neighbors from different religious traditions will “break bread together” side-by-side in a tangible act of respect and appreciation for our neighbors. (See above on how to RSVP for the dinner!)
  • Leaders of local Christian, Muslim, Jewish, B’Hai, and Buddhist fellowships will participate in the service including music, prayer, Scripture, and time for quiet reflection on the state of inter-faith relations in Carlisle and our nation.

Last year’s event was attended by over 250 people representing dozens of faith communities.  The leaders of the Carlisle Area Religious Council hope that this year you’ll be part of the year’s largest inter-faith gathering, too. 

Got Turkey?   Or rather, got turkey coupons from Giant?

Project Share is collecting the turkey coupons from Giant.   If you don't need your turkey coupon or you simply want to be generous, drop off your coupons at Project Share, 5 N. Orange Street, Carlisle (Suite 4), between 8am-4pm Mon-Thur, or 8am-noon on Fridays.


Do you have any new or lightly worn shoes to give away?

Ethel is collecting New & Gently used shoes for the Central PA Animal Alliance (No slippers, skates or cleats).   Collection is until November 14.   You can get the shoes to Ethel or drop them off at the PPG paint store at 24 W. South St in Carlisle.
