Holiday Family Dinner THIS SUNDAY!

December 4th following 2nd Serviceholiday-dinner

We want to kick off our Christmas Season gathering around the table… or in our case, tables!  Join us for turkey, ham and all the fixings!  Meat is covered, but the sides and deserts are provided by us… the family.  So feel free to bring something to share.

There is always room around our tables for a few extra guests, so feel free to invite friends and family.

    May you recognize God’s provision in your life… physically, emotionally, and spiritually. 

    Thanks for helping to make this possible.  Happy Thanksgiving!
