Pastors at two Great Bend churches encourage Christians to attend a Thanksgiving service of their choice next week. Both St. Mark Lutheran, 2101 Jackson, and Trinity Lutheran, 2701 24th St., announced special services. During these services they also will accept offerings of money and/or canned goods that will be given to the food banks of Hoisington, Rush County (in La Crosse) and Great Bend.
St. Mark Lutheran will hold a Thanksgiving service at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday. Pastor Adam Wutka will be preaching at this non-communion service.
Trinity Lutheran’s Thankgiving service will be at 7 p.m. Wednesday. Holy Communion will be celebrated. Special music will be provided by Trinity’s Bell Choir and Chancel Choir. The Rev. Wutka will also be preaching for this service.
These services were announced by the Rev. Wutka, pastor of St. Mark Lutheran and St. Paul Lutheran in Galatia, and the Rev. James A. Strasen, pastor of Trinity Lutheran.
