The pastor of the church, Dr. Chris Grimbilas, made the announcement following the Sunday morning service. “Our folks are excited about it,” said Pastor Grimbilas. “We will put out a full Thanksgiving meal; a turkey dinner with all the trimmings.” Several folks in the church immediately volunteered to help serve of cook food.
