Join Me for Dinner?

join me for dinner_WPBLOG

If you are in town on Tuesday night, November 25, I hope you will consider joining me for dinner.  You are invited to a great Thanksgiving feast and worship service at Ingleside.

The buffet meal (which includes turkey, dressing, and all the trimmings) begins at 4:45 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall, Dining Room, and Multi-Purpose Gym and will be served until 6:30 p.m.  It’s $5 for adults, $3 for children, and a $15 maximum for a family.

Though not required, it would help us make proper preparations if you could let us know you are coming to dinner by making a reservation here.  Last year more than 400 folks joined us for dinner, and this year we will have seating for 600.  We hope you will invite friends and family and celebrate God’s faithfulness over a great meal at Ingleside!

The worship service will be in the Worship Center at 6:30 p.m.  Jonathan Green and our Worship Arts team will be leading musically, I will be sharing a Thanksgiving-oriented message, and we will celebrate the Lord’s Supper together.

Children and students (ages 5 and above) should plan to join their parents in the Worship Center for this special Thanksgiving service.  Childcare is provided for those 4-years old and younger.

Every good gift in our lives comes from the Lord, and we should give him thanks.  I look forward to seeing you on Tuesday night, November 25!
