For the past four years, Bethel Church in Orlando, Fla., has been serving Thanksgiving dinner on Thanksgiving Day from 8-11 a.m. Each dinner includes an Amazing Facts tract attached to the food container. The members give physical food as well as spiritual food.
More than 200 people in the Orlando, Fla., area were served Thanksgiving dinner in 2019. Church members prepared the food and brought it to the church, and it was distributed in designated places to feed the homeless or those who needed a meal on Thanksgiving Day.
Morris Scott, community services director, states, “We have so many people that are homeless that do not have food — especially at the holiday time. It is good to share and shower them with God’s blessings.”
The Bethel Community Service Center is open on Wednesdays and Sundays to help the community. Matthew 25:35-40 states, “For I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.” The members are ready to do God’s work.
