Christians and pastors from churches of all denominations across Lee County are invited to the annual “Union Thanksgiving Service” on Nov. 24, starting at 6 p.m at Opelika’s Greater Peace Baptist Church.
The event is hosted by the Lee County Minister’s Alliance, and rotates between Greater Peace and First Baptist Church of Opelika.
Choirs from Pleasant Grove Baptist Church and the Auburn-Opelika Korean Church will perform, followed by a sermon from keynote speaker Jerry Scott Bradshaw, pastor of Covenenant Presbyterian Church in Auburn.
“Our hope is that the people who attend will see the unity and diversity of the body of Christ in this part of the world. There’s so much diversity in the denominations, doctrine and races who attend, but we all have the same belief in the same mighty God,” said Tom Tippett, pastor of the Church at Opelika.
For more information, call 334-749-9487. The church is located at 650 Jeter Ave.
