Thanksgiving Feast

Sponsored by the Outreach Team

Plan to attend the 5th annual Thanksgiving Feast on Sunday, November 22th following church.

Chef Rick Love and his helpers will prepare a delicious Thanksgiving meal. The menu includes: turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, dressing, rolls and butter, pumpkin pie and beverage.

Please sign up and bring a side dish for the Appetizer/Sides Table. Suggestions: green salad, vegetable tray, fruit tray, olives, pickles, stuffed celery, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, a family specialty or something you love, but would never fix just for yourself.

Reservations will be accepted beginning Sunday, November 1. The deadline is Tuesday, November 17th. Reservations may be made at church or by calling the church office.

Cost is $8 per adult. Children are welcome at no cost. Please let us know how many people are attending in your group, including all children who need a seat.

We will be organizing a set-up crew, cooks, servers and a clean-up crew to make the day go smoothly. Please volunteer if you are interested.
