FPCL Thanksgiving 2019 “For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in” – Matthew 25:35 (NIV)

Every year First Pres provides a full meal on Thanksgiving to those in our community.   Volunteers pack a full meal in a sack, and other volunteers deliver the meals directly to shut-ins, home-bound, or others in our community who are unable to leave their home.

375 pounds of turkey…

… and all the fixins!

This year we cooked 375 pounds of turkey, had 82 wonderful hard-working volunteers, delivered 183 meals, served 77 sit down meals in Ficklin Hall, and filled about a dozen walk-up requests for to-go meals.   Everyone who volunteered and came to eat, all seemed to have a great time of sharing with each other.


Welcome Veterans!
