Save-The-Date for 
CHGM's 10th Annual Thanksgiving Interfaith Service

Capitol Hill Group Ministry (CHGM) is proud to announce that we will host our 10th Annual Thanksgiving Interfaith Service on Sunday, November 24th, 4pm, at the Parish of St. Monica and St. James - 222 8th St NE.


The 10th Annual Thanksgiving Interfaith Service will celebrate CHGM's ever expanding services to our neighbors in need, the Capitol Hill community, and many of the congregations and volunteers that help make our neighborhood such a wonderful place to call home.


It is an opportunity for us to lift a prayerful voice of concern for those in our neighborhood still in need and to celebrate those who in faith are called to serve those in need.


This years' service will include readings, prayers, and the inspired voices of our congregational choirs that have made past services of thanksgiving extraordinarily meaningful. Returning this year will also include the recognition of volunteers from our member congregations as well as the 3rd Annual Ruth Rappaport Wisdom Award.

Thanks-GIVING Registration Open


It's Thanks-GIVING Baskets Time 
and we need your help!!!

Each fall, Capitol Hill Group Ministry (CHGM) proudly hosts our Annual Thanks-GIVING Food Basket Drive to help provide Thanksgiving Day feasts with all the trimmings to families in Ward 6 and beyond.


Because of your generosity, support, and compassion, CHGM's 2012 Thanks-GIVING Food Basket Program was successful in serving a Thanksgiving Day Feast to more than 1,480 members of our Capitol Hill community.


Given the trend over the past few years, CHGM estimates that this year's demand will once again come close to 475 baskets and will call on new sponsors to help meet the need. Each basket typically costs around $50 and feeds a family of 4.  


For more information about how you can donate a Thanksgiving Day Basket, or for detailed instructions regarding what items go in a thanksgiving basket, please visit


Please contact Shelah Wilcox ( with any questions you have about this years program.
