Members of all denominations are invited to attend, and Surry County Sheriff Graham Atkinson will deliver the sermon. Pastors from other denominations will also take part in the service which will last approximately one hour.
A special 20-minute Thanksgiving musical presentation will be provided by the host church choir combined with the Flippin Memorial Baptist Church Choir at 5:50 p.m., singing familiar Thanksgiving and other hymns followed by a congregational hymn sing before the worship service begins at 6:10 p. m. The service will end at 7:00 p.m. with the benediction given by Rev. Ted Turman. The church will then provide refreshments following the service in its Fellowship Hall.
This will be the only Community Thanksgiving Service sponsored by the Mount Airy Ministerial Association this year, according to association president Rev. Bob Josey.
