Local churches provide locals a holiday spread

MILLEDGEVILLE — Families in need of a hot Thanksgiving meal can stop by Shiloh Baptist Church to fill their stomachs with a full holiday spread.

The community Thanksgiving dinner will be served starting at 10 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 21 at the church located at 204 Harrisburg Rd.

“This will be our fourth year feeding the community. Each year it has grown bigger and bigger. The first year we served about 75, then 200 the following year, and we served 350 people last year,” said Pastor Shedrick D. Ellington. “This year we’re looking to exceed those numbers because there’s a higher percentage of people who are in need now than ever before.”

Members of the church will provide the food items.

“This time of year is a time to reflect on the goodness of God and reach out to people that are in need. We’re grateful that God has given us the opportunity to be able to give back to the community,” Ellington said. “We’re looking forward to the [event], interacting with the community and just giving back. We enjoy doing this and enjoy serving people because that’s what God demanded for us to do.”

The Hospitality Committee of The Community Life Ministry will also be giving Milledgeville a Thanksgiving dinner Saturday, Nov. 23 from 12:30 to 2 p.m. The meal will be served at First Harvest Christian Church, located at the old Midway School.

“We will have chicken, dressing macaroni and cheese, green beans, rolls, cake and punch,” said Terrance Hooks, advisor of the ministry. “We’re expecting 150 to 200 people. We really want to thank God.”
