Every Thanksgiving Day Epworth sponsors a FREE meal to all who want to come organized by thekitchen@epworth. The meal is a community fellowship event. The Inviting All Ministry Team is blessed to have a wonderful team responsible for thekitchen@epworth. They keep things going with over 100 volunteers who spend weeks planning and then preparing and then cleaning up and then resting – with smiles of joy on their faces.

Here is what the event was all about…

    All are welcome to join us for our free Thanksgiving Day Dinner. Come and enjoy the food and the companionship of old friends and new friends who you will meet here. We would like to especially invite our friends in the deaf and hard of hearing community. We are serving dinner from noon to 3pm – open seating, no reservations required. Carry-Out is also available.
    2-years ago we lost our founder to cancer. While she is not with us in body, she will always be here in spirit. We miss Diane Leitch tremendously and we work on in her memory. Her loving smile lives on in our hearts.
    Our “Turkeyville Team” will begin preparations for Thursday’s dinner well in advance, but Monday is when the majority of the prep work begins. The team works like a fine oiled machine and we are always looking for new parts. If you’d like to help with food prep, dishing out dinners and serving them or in cleaning up, you may sign-up using our online service. It is called SignUp Genius, but we call it SignUp Jesus – imagine that – after all, we are the hands and feet of Jesus, especially on a day like this. Our SignUp Jesus page is now LIVE! CLICK HERE!.
    If you are interested in donating turkeys or money for the dinner, please call our HOTLINE at 302-227-7743 x117 and leave a message, someone will get back to you shortly.
    And, if you’d like to help us promote this event, there is a link at the bottom of the page to download a printable version of the poster in 2 different sizes.
