Our Thanksgiving Meal at the Church

Staff EditorEvents


Turkey, dressing, and numerous fixings were prepared for the November 22nd, 2018 Thanksgiving lunch at Christ Fellowship Church in Ringgold, GA. It was a labor of love, because it takes time to prepare for such a great feast.

Most of the side items, such as cranberry sauce, were made the night before or a couple days before Thursday.

The two frozen turkeys were allowed to thaw in a refrigerator three days before they were baked in an oven at the church for at least four hours.

Friends,loved ones and guests came to the lunch by 1:00 p.m. to talk, prepare what they contributed to the meal, and to offer help to the cooks. After a prayer the meal started at 2 p.m.

Among the desserts offered were homemade pumpkin pie, homemade pumpkin bread, and homemade pumpkin cheesecake, the latter of which had a topping mixture of dark brown sugar, butter, and walnuts.
