Last night we did our first ever Pre-Thanksgiving Dinner at New Hope. It was a joint venture between the 153 Student Ministries (Youth), New Hope Kids’ Club, and the Mid-Week Adult Bible Fellowship. Together, we packed out the sanctuary, seating and feeding about 180 people (which is our maximum amount of space). Special thanks to all those who helped children through the food line, brought food items, helped maintain order, and helped to remove tables and chairs after the night was over.
I met several parents of bus kids (one of our main goals), and interacted with teens and kids in the Scavenger Hunt. I appreciate Ayron Reeves for creating the idea, and all those who stepped up to fill in cracks and make it a pleasant evening.
I’m expecting the night impacted many lives enough that their own Thanksgiving Feast next Thursday will be a little different…a little more special…a little more family oriented…and a little more thanks-oriented. Way to go, New Hope!
