Church helps feed the community for Thanksgiving

The annual Community of Faith Thanksgiving Day Dinner will be held again this year.  This free meal is open to anyone wanting to share in the food and fellowship on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 28.  Many people from several area churches and organizations will be not only contributing food items, but also preparing and helping to serve the meal.  This is the 24th year for this event.

The meal will again be held at Centenary United Methodist Church at 7th and South Carolina Streets in Louisiana, from noon until 2 p.m. with deliveries beginning at 10:30 a.m. to people in Louisiana and Clarksville.  Those wanting take-out meals may pick them up at the church after 12:00 noon, and those who wish to eat at church can do so from noon to 2 p.m.

Call the church office at 573-754-4412 for reservations for a delivered meal or take-out orders.  For deliveries, please give the address for delivery, phone number, number of meals needed and names of those receiving the meals.  A reservation is not necessary for those who plan to dine in.  Calls will still be accepted on Thanksgiving Day morning.

Planning sessions have been held and numerous volunteers are lined up for preparations the day before and to serve as workers on Thanksgiving Day, but additional volunteers are always welcome and appreciated.  Work on Wednesday will begin at 10 a.m., and at 6 a.m. on Thanksgiving.  Please call the church office if you would like to help.

Again, the number to call to have your name placed on the list for deliveries, take-outs or dining at the church is 573-754-4412.

Come and enjoy the fun and fellowship of a traditional Thanksgiving Day meal with the area churches and organizations at this year’s Community of Faith Thanksgiving Day Dinner.
