Giving Thanks

Posted October 31, 2012 in Adel, Community Featured

Adel churches will donate homemade pies to the annual Adel Community Thanksgiving Dinner.

The 21st Adel Community Thanksgiving dinner is a proud tradition and celebration of charity, gratitude and fellowship in the community.

As in the past, it is taking place at the A-D-M High School commons room, and everyone is invited to join the feast and celebrate the true meaning of Thanksgiving. As families, couples and singles of all ages find their seats in the commons, folks are sure to see long-lost friends and make new ones, too.

The meal will include dishes cooked and served with love by an array of different volunteers and families contributing traditional Thanksgiving trimmings to the spread.

“This is the real essence of a Thanksgiving dinner in the community,” says Kandi Beaman, office coordinator at Adel United Methodist Church.

Although this meal is usually hosted by a variety of community members, the Thanksgiving celebration wouldn’t be complete without the contributions from the churches of Adel, and all are invited to participate. Like every other year, each church will be donating 10 homemade pies to conclude the dinner and a variety of other Thanksgiving trimmings.

“It’s been going on for over 20 years and it gets bigger every year,” says Beaman.

Aside from its Thanksgiving feast preparations, First Christian Church wants to remind everyone that they will be holding their annual Thanksgiving sermon and supper on Tuesday, Nov. 20. Everyone is invited to join in on the fellowship and celebration surrounding the holiday. The supper will commence at 6 p.m., followed by the 7 p.m. service. This is a great opportunity to meet others within the congregation and the community to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday.

Speaking of meal preparations, the Panther Creek Church Women’s Fellowship is hosting a fundraising event in hopes to raise money for a much-needed kitchen remodel at the church. On Sunday, Dec. 9, all are welcome to join the ladies for a soup luncheon which will also include a craft and bake sale, from 11:45 a.m. to 2 p.m. Lunch will be served for free-will donations. Anyone who’d like to contribute crafts, baked goods or monetarily, may contact the church before the day of the event at 993-4096.
