Saturday, November 17, 6:30 p.m.
RHUMC’s Thanksgiving Dinner has been a favorite event for many of our church families and their friends, and we hope you will join us again this year!
Warm apple cider will be served in the Martha’s Room from 6:00-6:30 p.m. while you check in to get your table assignment and greet friends and neighbors. Wesley Hall will open at 6:30 p.m. to welcome you to your assigned table.
Our traditional dinner, prepared by our own gourmet chefs and volunteers, will include turkey prepared in the Weber kettles, cornbread dressing, mashed potatoes and gravy, corn pudding, green beans, cranberry relish and cranberry “fluff,” pecan, apple, pumpkin pies and sugar-free pumpkin pie for those watching their sugar consumption!
Following the dinner, we move to the Sanctuary to be entertained by the LA South Towns Show Chorus, affiliated with the Sweet Adelines International, to hear over twenty women singers who enjoy harmonizing in the acapella style, under the direction of Caroline McLean. Their musical menu includes traditional favorites, nostalgic show tunes, and classics you’ll recognize. We thank Ann Peitzman, a member of the group, for helping to make this performance possible.
Donations for the dinner and show are $30.00 per adult, and $15 per child under twelve. All net proceeds will be donated to helping our youth attend the Sierra Service Project next summer. Reservations will be taken on the patio between morning services and following the second service. Third service attendees may reserve before the 5:30 service begins or contact the church office. You may request special seating arrangements and child care, but we need to know at the time you make your reservations.
Volunteers are needed to help cook and/or decorate Wesley Hall. If you would like to join us, please contact Suellen Fung or Doug Kemps for details.
