Ascension and AYM participants and church family volunteers will once again team up to provide a Thanksgiving dinner to those in need over the 2018 holiday season.
Procedure will change this year from a “serving line” to Church members and volunteers taking “orders” from one table at a time and bringing the food and drinks to the table, with dessert consisting of a bowl of cookies at each table. Homemade cookies are welcome and encouraged!
The reason for the change in format is that many people who come to this meal have physical problems and standing in a long line is difficult for them. We are expecting about 175 people, so we will need as many volunteers as possible. We will again use disposable plates, cups and utensils which will cut down on the clean-up.
Year after year, hosting the Thanksgiving Breaking Bread meal has afforded our church community with the joy of serving God and His people in a broader way - what began as a teaching opportunity for our youth (who remain critical to the event success) has grown, and continue to come away from it feeling blessed by those we serve.
Come and join us!
