Central Church hosts Thanksgiving meal
Sharing a communal meal is a Thanksgiving tradition.
History tells us one of the first gratitude gatherings occurred in 1621 in Plymouth, Mass., when Pilgrims shared a meal with Native Americans.
Expressing thanks for blessings continues when Americans gather Nov. 28 to celebrate Thanksgiving.
Some observe the national holiday at home, but at Central Church, as well as other locations in in Beaver County, it’s also become tradition for families, friends, neighbors and even strangers to gather at churches or community centers to share a communal meal. It’s a chance for individuals, couples and families to unite in fellowship.
At Central, our meals — served by volunteers — are free, and no advance reservations are required.
We believe that no one should be alone on Thanksgiving. Come join us!
