Thanksgiving Community Meal for All 

Thursday, November 24, 12 – 1 PM | Fellowship Hall
Please help out: https://rb.gy/abjktk

Each year, the good folks of Our Redeemer’s host anybody and everybody for a no-cost Thanksgiving meal from 12 – 1pm on Thanksgiving Day. 

It takes about 108 (or more!) volunteers to pull Thanksgiving off, and it’s an amazing gift not only to those who get to taste it, but especially to those who prepare it and clean it up afterward. 

In addition to the essential cooks and servers, we have one very important volunteer position: Table Hosts. Each table will have one person who dines with the folks who are there, helps to make sure that everyone gets food, distributes the sleeping bag tickets, and gets to know the people with whom they are sitting. It’s a special kind of a job – ensuring that grace is shown and that every person is honored at this meal of gratitude. 

Please sign-up to help out at https://rb.gy/abjktk. The categories are:

Prepare the meal 

Carve the turkeys 

Set the tables 

Cook the meal 

Table Hosts 

Dishing up the meal 

Greeting guests 

Serving and Clearing 

Distribution of sleeping bags

Monetary donations to offset the costs of giving away 150 new sleeping bags are greatly appreciated! Due to the popularity of this opportunity to serve our community, we are asking that all helpers sign up in advance of this event. Once all the positions are filled, we cannot accept more help. 

If you have questions contact Phillipa Dugaw (volunteers@ourredeemers.net) or Lisa Thompson (egglayer@comcast.net) What a great community, and a gracious gift! See you on Thanksgiving!
