Community Thanksgiving Dinner

Thanksgiving Day

Join a host of volunteers from the congregation as we host and serve a traditional Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings, free to anyone who would like to come. Lunch is served in the Family Life Center. Work begins around 8:00 AM and lunch is served at 11:00 AM. There's plenty to do, and a blessing is guaranteed!

Shoebox Ministry


It's amazing how something so small can be so important to the life of someone in need. $10 can fill a shoebox with a number of daily essentials for someone who has been displaced from their home or who is going through difficult financial times. Donate shoeboxes, supplies, money, or your time to prepare these boxes of mercy.
