Last November, 121 volunteers from many local churches and other entities partnered with Powerhouse Ministries to share a Thanksgiving meal with over 300 Folsom neighbors. This annual community meal is an event for people in the Folsom Community who may not have the familial connections or financial means to have a Thanksgiving meal at home.
The Folsom Community Center was decorated beautifully as neighbors enjoyed a delicious home cooked Thanksgiving meal with all the fixings. Children enjoyed arts and crafts, bounce houses, carnival games and relay races. Dinner was followed by a powerful worship service and a simple gospel message that introduced some people listening to a God that loves them for the very first time.
Church Volunteer Network was honored to help provide support funds to this event and continue to pray for the hearts of those who experienced and heard about God’s love this day.
