“Adopt a Turkey” Food Drive

October 6, 2021

The Deacons and the Mission Committee will once again be having our “Adopt a Turkey” food drive to assist Grace AME Church in providing a Thanksgiving meal to those in need in our community. Grace AME has been steadfast in safely providing food assistance throughout the pandemic. This year will be much like last year in that they hope to provide a meal to over 200 families by having a curbside pickup on November 20. There are many ways to give to this wonderful ministry.

  • There is a bin in the back of the sanctuary. We will be collecting through November 14.
  • On Saturday, November 6, 9:00 am – 1:00pm, the Knights of Columbus will host the second annual “Fill this truck” event. We will be distributing paper bags in worship and encourage folks to fill them and bring to this event
  • On Friday, November 12, 4:00-6:00pm, we will be collecting food items in the small Frederick Rd parking lot
