The Family Table
When we think about Thanksgiving, we think of family. The term "family" can take on so many meanings and go beyond our traditional definition. People we call family can be close friends, mentors, etc. Each year, Friendship House sets the table for our family - our community. We invite our community and volunteers to share a table and a meal. Volunteers prepared and served turkey, ham with all the sides one could ask for. Volunteers also helped organize items to be given away. Most importantly, our volunteers visited with and shared conversations with those in attendance. Tables were full of laughter and prayer. We were greatly blessed to have local churches and individuals participate with us this year.
Please pray for our community. Many deal with hunger, grief, addiction, etc. Pray that the light of Jesus would be seen and felt throughout the community as we approach the Christmas season.
