The congregation at the First Presbyterian Church will prepare a hot Thanksgiving meal for Fayette County residents who are homebound on Thursday, Nov. 23.

The meal, consisting of turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans, cranberry salad and dessert, will be delivered by church members and friends before noon on Thanksgiving Day.

This is the ninth year the First Presbyterian Church has been sharing their Thanksgiving with the community. Residents who are enrolled in a home meal program will be receiving information about the Thanksgiving meal and an opportunity to schedule a delivery. All area churches have received a letter offering the meals to any shut-in of whom they may know. Anyone may call the church office to request a meal for a homebound person who would like a meal on Thanksgiving.

This meal is part of an ongoing food ministry program to uplift community residents, showing them the unconditional love of Jesus by sharing resources. First Presbyterian is fortunate to have many community partners who help with a food ministry of sharing resources and distributing abundance.

If you know of a homebound person who would like a meal on Thanksgiving Day, please call the church office at 740-335-2067 with the recipient’s name, address and a contact telephone number by Nov. 17.
