Mountain View Baptist Church gives thanks by giving back
With 75 volunteers cooking, serving and delivering for the 23rd annual event, Mountain View Baptist Church in Phil Campbell served 605 free Thanksgiving dinners — 29 more than last year’s 576 meals (which was 110 more than the previous year) to community members and others nearby who registered on the church’s website for the event.
“Everyone was very excited and appreciative,” said the church’s pastor, Sammy Taylor. “It was a great day in the ministry!”
Taylor said the event is meant to help those “who would otherwise not be enjoying the holiday to its fullest.” Those receiving meals had the option to pick them up (limit of six) at the church or to have them delivered if within 15 miles of the church.
“We look forward as a Faith family to serve our Lord by serving others. To God be the glory!”
