A Thanksgiving Service

Every November we host a special Sunday Thanksgiving service at our church. The entire service is designed around the thanksgiving theme and we add some elements that make the service feel set apart from other services.

This is an easy Thanksgiving service program I put together that can be done in both small and large church settings. It includes links to videos and chord charts.

I’d love to hear what you do at your Thanksgiving service! Let me know in the comments below.

TESTIMONIES | Personal testimonies from 2 to 4 people, prepared in advance. Try to keep each testimony to about 3 or 4 lines or 30 seconds each. Have everyone who will be sharing a testimony line up on or off the platform and then hand the mic directly to the next person to eliminate any dead space.

Additional Ideas

  1. Cardboard Testimonies – Watch / You can use any song you think is fitting. How He Loves was used in this video.
  2. Thanksgiving Scriptures – Have the children, youth, and/or adults quote scriptures on thankfulness. Be sure to have background music. To keep things moving smoothly, you can do this the same way described under Testimonies above.
  3. Special Groups – If you have a choir, trio, children’s or youth group, have a special song or 2 before the Video: Thankful People. Check out this post and this video for more song inspiration. Thankful is an easy children’s song.
