A lot of people don’t have a family to gather around the table and share a meal with even during the holiday season. That’s one of the reasons Liberty Church hosts a Thanksgiving family dinner for its members.
“We are big on having a church family,” explained Pastor Frieda White. “Everyone in the congregation is invited and they can bring a friend.”
Nearly 300 people gathered for fellowship and traditional favorites, including 15 turkeys, five hams, sides, and desserts provided by volunteers.
“We do it so everyone can have a Thanksgiving dinner,” said White who praised the women’s ministry for helping to plan and execute the event.
“They decorated on Saturday and brought the food in on Sunday,” said White.
The fellowship time offered a chance for individuals to share laughs, stories, and contemplate on the things for which they are thankful.
“We choose to be grateful,” explained White. “Don’t grumble or complain about what’s going on in the world. Take one day to just be grateful.”
