Live Oak Church to host free Thanks­giv­ing meal

The Standard Journal - - LIFESTYLE - By AGNES HA­GIN

Live Oak Bap­tist Church, 150 Live Oak Road, Aragon, is host­ing a free Thanks­giv­ing meal from 5 to 7 p.m. Wed­nes­day, Nov. 26.

The church has set a goal to feed 200 or more peo­ple in the com­mu­nity.

The menu con­sists of turkey and dress­ing, cran­berry sauce, green beans, corn, rolls, dessert, sweet tea and lemon­ade. It will be served in the church fel­low­ship hall (turn right at Bur­ton’s Store off High­way 101).

Ev­ery­one will be wel­come to share food and fel­low­ship. Warm cloth­ing and blan­kets will be avail­able to those in need.

Do­na­tions can be dropped off at Clean Spot (be­side Ad­vance Re­hab in Tri­an­gle Square Shop­ping Cen­ter, Rock­mart) or at the church.

Home­bound in­di­vid­u­als and those in need with­out trans­porta­tion can have a plate de­liv­ered to them. Those with­out a way to the church are asked to get their name on the church list.

Melanie Cham­bers, Young Adult Sun­day School class, ini­tially sug­gested the idea for the free meal. She said she was in­spired to do some­thing for those in need, lonely and with­out fam­ily to share the hol­i­day.

With­out hes­i­ta­tion, the church joined a team ef­fort to con­tact friends and or­ga­ni­za­tions and ac­ti­vated plans for the “Share the Love” event.

For ad­di­tional in­for­ma­tion, call Pas­tor An­thony Os­born at 770241-2961 or Melanie at 404-293-0869.
