Former members of our congregation Clarence and Bonnie Edwards started the Thanksgiving Day Community Meal in 1991. At first the event was completely run by volunteer coordinators, but it is now under the leadership of the Board of Outreach. The earlier Thanksgiving meals were surved buffet style, but now our guests are seated and are served their meals by our volunteers.
These words now have a very familiar ring in our heads. We have heard them consistently in worship and you should have received a brochure with a personal note from a member of the Stewardship Board, with those words on the brochure.
