Columbus Baptist plans to feed hundreds on Thanksgiving

Columbus Baptist Church will be holding its 11th annual community Thanksgiving Day dinner on Thursday at the church on North National Road.

Pastor Chuck Kennedy says that the dinner has really grown since it started as the Feed the Flock ministry.

Kennedy said it was eye-opening  to find out just how many people in the community are alone on Thanksgiving Day.

Kennedy said that for many in the the community, the only contact on Thanksgiving may be the delivery driver.

Kennedy said that the drivers will ask if they can pray with those who they deliver meals to.

Kennedy said that volunteers at the church have been working on the dinner since about August. The entire meal is provided through cash and food donations from members and the community.

The sit-down meal will be from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday at the church.

The church will continue to take Thanksgiving delivery requests through tonight. You can call 812-371-1400 or 812-344-1794
