This year we participated in the Vineyard’s Turkey Fest. Chris and I really didn’t know what the heck we were getting into but thought that it would be a fun outreach that we could do with our children. So we picked up a box from church filled up with a Turkey Dinner and return to church the following week.
We did a little celebration together as a community before we went out and gave our box away. The chruch’s goal was to give away 800 dinners to needy families. We found out through small group that the 800 boxes were gone before the last service so they were giving people bags to fill. We didn’t just meet our goal but surpased it! Can you believe that we feed 1,000 needy families in the Greater Cincinnati Area? When the Harmony, the lady who ran Turkey Fest, got up to tell us about it she was moved to tears. She said Next Year will be bigger yet!
So we headed out to give our basket away to our family and it was nice. We said a nice little prayer with her put the box in her house and went home. It was nice and easy way to do outreach especially since we have been out of pratice!
