First Presbyterian’s Nov. community service projects


Several years ago, First Presbyterian Church decided to offer a complete hot meal—a “Miracle Meal”—to Meals on Wheels participants on Thanksgiving Day; otherwise, those approximately 100 shut-ins could spend the entire weekend without warm food.

Mission Council’s Jennifer Pieratt proposed that this year the congregation be invited to take part not only in the preparation of the “Miracle Meal” on the actual holiday, Nov. 24, but also in purchasing potentially hard-to-find ingredients that would go into the now-200 “Thanksgiving Baskets” (each topped with a frozen turkey) that would be distributed on the Monday before the holiday, Nov. 21.

Mission Council’s Jill Maddux-Roberts labeled feathers with specific food items, and as people brought to the church their designated foods, they stuck their feathers on Pieratt’s paper turkeys.
