Thanksgiving Dinner: November 22nd

We can trace this historic American Christian tradition to the year 1623. After the harvest crops were gathered in November 1623, Governor William Bradford of the 1620 Pilgrim Colony, “Plymouth Plantation” in Plymouth, Massachusetts proclaimed:

“All ye Pilgrims with your wives and little ones, do gather at the Meeting House, on the hill… there to listen to the pastor, and render Thanksgiving to the Almighty God for all His blessings.”

This Thanksgiving, will you make your home a “meeting house on the hill?”

This is a great opportunity for you and I to reach out to those who are less fortunate than we are. Do you have room at your table and in your heart this year to invite someone or family who will be alone this Thanksgiving? If you do, would you please email us: outreach@marincovenant.org

And if you know of someone that needs the company of others for Thanksgiving, either email us so that we can connect them with someone who is opening their Thanksgiving table OR invite them to your Thanksgiving festivities.

And may you and your household be blessed.
