YOU ARE NEEDED: We are so appreciative of the response to the call for volunteers to serve dinner to the homeless on Thanksgiving Day. We are still in need of volunteers for marketing/outreach and a ministry team to fellowship with our guests. If you have it in your heart to bring the "Good News" to others and/or take a meal to God's home-bound persons, please join us for several hours on Thanksgiving Day. Please visit the sign-up table in the lobby.
