About the Event
Sunday, November 12, the last day to sign up to participate in our Thanksgiving Outreach at the Rio Vista Center! We will be teaming up with the Rio Vista Center and several other organizations to help distribute groceries and frozen turkeys and serve Thanksgiving dinner to about 2000 needy people in our community. We need people to bake cookies, bag groceries, gut turkeys, cook side dishes and serve dinners!
Sign up in the church lobby on Sunday, here, or by texting the word "turkey" to 480 524-0889.
Thanksgiving is a great time of year to reflect on all that you and your family have to be grateful for. This outreach is an excellent opportunity to express your appreciation to God for His blessing on your life by helping to serve the needs of the less fortunate in our own community.
We will be collecting food items Sunday, November 12, to help stock Rio Vista's food pantry for the big Thanksgiving event. There will be some big plastic trash cans in the church lobby that you can place your food donations in. We will also be collecting frozen turkeys during both services in the church parking lot to give away at the event. An example of the contents of the grocery bags that will be distributed at the outreach would be: 4 cans vegetables, 2 boxes mashed potatoes, 2 cans cranberry sauce, 2 cans yams, & 1 dessert mix.
