Members of the Roslyn Presbyterian Church and the Kalam Lutheran Church, who worship separately on Sundays in the same building, normally greet each other with smiles and simple hellos throughout the year due to language differences and style of worship — but at Thanksgiving it's different. 

Each year, the two culturally different church congregations use the holiday as a means to unite. 

The Kalam Church is mostly made up of Christian people who have immigrated from Taiwan. 

"It’s basically a celebration of diverse cultures and what Thanksgiving means to us all," said event organizer Rachel Wolf.

The tradition has gone on for several years on the Sunday following Thanksgiving. 

The congregations integrate sermons and music during worship, then feast on a traditional American Thanksgiving meal with some Taiwanese delicacies.
