International Thanksgiving Blessing
November 15 - November 19
We cannot host international Thanksgiving this November. However, we would still like to bless International people in our community in a different way this year.Instead of hosting internationals for a meal we have decided to deliver “blessing bags” to the people we would have invited. The purpose of a blessing bag is to extend a warm welcome to internationals living among us, to share the spirit of the season of thanksgiving, and to let people know we care.
We are excited about this opportunity to share the spirit of Thanksgiving even though we are not able to sit around the table and enjoy a meal together.
We are going to need a lot of help to make it happen. We will be asking the whole church to consider helping. Here are some ways help is needed:
We need names and addresses of international friends and acquaintances in the OKC area whom we would like to bless. We already have a list of those who were here for our 2019 international thanksgiving meal, and we hope to add many more names.
We will need volunteers to meet on Sunday, November 15th, to prepare all the blessing bags for delivery.
We will need volunteers to deliver the bags between November 15th and 19th to the people on our list.
