Please join us for Fort Wayne’s annual community Interfaith Thanksgiving Service on Tuesday, November 21 at 7 p.m. at the Temple. Iric Headley, director of Fort Wayne United, will speak during the program. The service will include representatives of Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, and Hindu congregations.

Headley has led Fort Wayne United since the mayoral initiative was announced in July 2016 to enhance opportunities, advance youth advocacy, and help ensure the safety of all residents, but more specifically for African-American men and boys.

Please support this important community event and the strong bonds we share with people of faith in the Fort Wayne community. Donations will be collected at the service to benefit Fort Wayne United. A reception will follow the service.
