Give Thanks!

November 19, 2015 |

Psalm 100:4 - Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise.  Give thanks to him, bless his name.

Home Sweet Home Ministries and our generous community have pooled their resources in recent weeks to ensure that families in our community will have a blessed Thanksgiving.  We plan to distribute 2000 Thanksgiving meal packs, complete with turkeys, in the days leading up to Thanksgiving.  Our volunteers will prepare, package, and deliver hot Thanksgiving meals to about 500 people who will be home-bound on Thanksgiving Day.  Our doors will be open for anyone who wants to join us for a Thanksgiving meal in our dining room.

Why do we do this?  Thanks-giving permeates everything we do at Home Sweet Home Ministries, not just in November, but year-round.  We were founded on Thanksgiving Day in 1917, so we are celebrating our 98th birthday!  We are also celebrating God's goodness and the faithfulness of God's people in sharing their blessings with their neighbors.  A hearty thank-you to everyone who has contributed volunteer time, food, and financial gifts.  Have a blessed Thanksgiving.
