The Clergy Coalition of Coral Springs & Parkland is proud to announce our annual pre-Thanksgiving Unity Service, scheduled for November 20, 2018 at 7:00 PM. We invite you to join us at Temple Beth Orr, located at 2151 Riverside Drive in Coral Springs (http://templebethorr.org/).
Our Thanksgiving Unity Service is a celebratory and music-themed event in which congregations from northwest Broward join to give thanks, and to get to know one another. The pageantry, the music, and the special messages and greetings combine to make this a moving and memorable service.
While a dozen or more congregations participate every year, we move the annual service between the four host congregations with large enough facilities to seat all of our attendees (Congregation Kol Tikvah, First Church, St. Andrew Catholic Church, and Temple Beth Orr).
In keeping with our Thanksgiving theme, we invite those who attend to bring canned food items which will benefit those who have need in our community. We also receive a free-will offering intended for the same purpose.
Thank you for being a part of our richly diverse community.
Coral Springs Talk had this to say in advance of our 2014 event:
The Annual Coral Springs-Parkland pre-Thanksgiving Interfaith Unity Service is a well-established tradition that hundreds of people in the local faith community look forward to every year. The service convenes at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 25, 2014 at Temple Beth Orr, this year’s host congregation. This much anticipated annual event draws on people of all faiths from a dozen local houses of worship to “praise God from Whom all blessings flow.” For more than 20 years, this service has featured a combined choir of all participating congregations, a joint children’s choir and a presentation by the city government in honor of the occasion. A cash offering will be taken to benefit a local charity and those attending are invited also to bring canned good for the Temple Beth Orr Food Closet. The local clergy coalition works together on the inspirational prayer content, within the framework of a musical program that is designed by the choral directors of all four hosting congregations. The joint choir and children’s choir are made up of members of all participating congregations.
