The Aspen Chapel Christian and Jewish communities will host a Thanksgiving service and potluck dinner at 5 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 23, at the Aspen Chapel. A short service by the children of both Christian and Jewish communities will start at 5 p.m. followed by the potluck dinner in the Aspen Chapel Gallery.

At 4 p.m., prior to the 5 p.m. service and dinner, Rev. Gregg Anderson and Rabbi Laurie Green will have an informal discussion about Thanksgiving.
