Loading up the Thanksgiving Baskets!
Thanksgiving. A time to gather with friends and family, eat more than you should and give thanks. However, for some in our community, a Thanksgiving meal may not be in the budget. The Outreach ministry at CTS works directly with Cornerstones to help provide those in need with the makings of a Thanksgiving meal.
This year we collected enough from our little congregation (plus Thrivent Federal Credit Union) to put together 70+ baskets! After the service this Sunday, after celebrating Pastor Carl's 40th year ordination anniversary, we rolled up our sleeves and spent 30 minutes putting the baskets (actually boxes, but whatever) together. This year, the baskets we assembled were sent to the West Glade and Stonegate Community Centers.
Many thanks again to everyone for their generosity!
