Community Thanksgiving Service
The Perry County Ministerial Association would like to invite everyone to attend the Hazard Community Thanksgiving Service. It will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 24, at 7 p.m. at the First Baptist Church in downtown Hazard. In light of all that has happened in our city in the past few months, we have much to be grateful for in that no human lives were lost. The community is invited to show their gratitude by bringing canned food which will be collected to assist local food pantries. A monetary offering will also be collected which will provide food boxes to patients and families in Hospice care. We would like to issue a special invitation to emergency services personnel as well as those who were displace by the fire at the Grand Hotel. Come out and join us as we give thanks for another year of God’s protection and blessing!
