Churches thankful to be helping

Three local churches will be hosting Thanksgiving meals for area residents in need Wednesday and Thursday.

The Victory Tabernacle’s Heaven’s Kitchen and Kingdom Life Assembly of God will both be serving Thanksgiving Dinner to those who are hungry or will not have family to share the holiday with.

Kingdom Life, located at 320 S. Meridian, will be serving Thursday from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. “We will also be making some deliveries for people who can’t make it out of their homes,” said Jennifer Miley, one of the events organizers. “We want people who do not have a place to go for the holidays to feel welcome to come here.”

“The vision and mission of Kingdom Life is to be Kingdom-minded,” said Pastor Steven Thomas. “We want to do what Jesus would do if he were still on Earth.”

Donations for the meal can be made to the church to help cover the cost of the groceries. Church members will be volunteering their time to prepare the meal and have donated some of the items needed. To have a meal delivered, please call 840-1360. Free will donations will also be taken for the meal. This is the first year for Kingdom Life to host the Thanksgiving meal.

“We just felt there was a need and this was a great way to help others who may not have family or a place to go for Thanksgiving,” said Miley.

Victory Tabernacle will be serving from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m. both Wednesday and Thursday at the church located at 1419 W. Walnut St. Over the last six weeks, hundreds of local residents have eaten an evening meal at Heaven’s Kitchen. Open from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, organizer B.J. Riley said the response to the soup kitchen has been overwhelming.
