Thanksgiving Dinner Invitation

Are you looking for a table to join at Thanksgiving? Or are you just tired of thawing, stuffing, cooking, slicing, dicing, mashing, mincing, and baking? Join your LAUMC family for Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday, November 23, 2:00-5:00pm! You can bring the whole family—even Uncle Bob! It’s free to attend, with contributions accepted but not necessary. No shopping, cooking, or worry—just show up and give thanks. The menu includes roast turkey breast, gravy, stuffing, honey-baked ham, garlic mashed potatoes, sweet potato pie, roasted vegetables, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie, pecan pie, ice cream, coffee, tea, and milk.

Reservations are required by Monday, November 20, so that food quantities and seating can be prepared. Please sign up online. We will gather at 2:00pm in Creekside, with dinner served at 2:30 (please arrive by 2:15). We hope everyone can give five minutes after dinner to help clean up.

If you would like to volunteer to assist with cooking, serving, or cleaning up, contact Karl Hansen by November 5. Limited spots are available.
