My heart is full with a grateful heart for all the Lord did this year at Thanksgiving.
That I may proclaim with the voice of thanksgiving, And tell of all Your wondrous works. ~ Psalm 26:7
Our annual Church Thanksgiving meal was amazing this year – final numbers were 670 meals served which includes 250 at Indian Hills, so we exceeded our goal of 600 – last year we did around 400, so it was by far our best Thanksgiving meal ever – we had 60 volunteers, mostly from the community – I think 20 were from our church. We did about 145 deliveries, 115 at our church, and another 30 at Indian Hills Senior Housing complex that has 1600 apartments. We did a serving line there for the first time serving some in the small room where it was held, and most were taken back to their apartment. It is amazing how well it came together and we are doing a better job of raising the funds, and connecting people. It is a beautiful thing when a plan comes together.
In 6 days we served 4 community meals which represented over 1000 meals served. Our produce outreach served 574 people representing, 199 families.
I think a great idea for Thanksgiving is to write to those in your life that you are thankful for, as it gives you the opportunity to articulate how good God has been to you.
I am truly thankful for you, and I thank God for you as well.
