Annual ThanksGVIN Celebration on Nov. 26

Grand Valley Interfaith Network (GVIN) invites the community to its annual “ThanksGVIN Interfaith Celebration of Gratitude” event on Tuesday, November 26 at 7:00 p.m. This year’s host is Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church (3133 F. Road, Grand Junction 81504). The theme is “With Grateful Hearts.”

Rev. Kaila Armbruster and her team are organizing the 2019 event, including the pie feast and fellowship that follow the gratitude service. The event will be filled with music and various presentations from several leaders of GVIN’s member organizations.

Donations will be collected by GVIN at the event for The House Youth Shelter, a short-term housing program for homeless teens here on the Western Slope. Their mission is simple: “We want to see every youth that is experiencing homelessness to find hope and a future.” Check donations are to be made payable to The House.

Grand Valley Interfaith Network is a community of historical churches and congregations, church-based agencies, and other established faith traditions in the Grand Valley. GVIN’s purpose is to foster cooperation among its members, to provide a means for coordinated community service and action, to foster opportunities for learning and mutual support, and to serve as a clearing house of information and resources between the community and the members.

In addition to the annual ThanksGVIN service, GVIN organizes two major food drives each year for local charities, collecting thousands of pounds of food from their member organizations and congregations. For more information, visit our website:
