Community Thanksgiving Dinner

The 23rd Annual Community Dinner is on Thanksgiving Day at 1 pm in Fellowship Hall. We have reached capacity but if you'd like to get on the waiting list please contact us as soon as possible.

Our Social Ministry Team began this holiday dinner in 1997. The goal was to create a welcoming event to which everyone in the community was invited for fellowship, food and celebration. Attendance has more than tripled since that first year! From 1999-2008 we partnered with our neighbors at Hopkins United Methodist (which was located across Hwy. 7.) Even though that congregation has dissolved, a group of their volunteers continues returning to help, providing an integral part of the kitchen and serving process.

The Social Ministry Team coordinators for this event are: Donna Anderson, or 952-933-0453 and Dodi Swanberg, or 952-935-4655.
