Once again before Thanksgiving, churches of the Hollins community will gather for worship and to give thanks. This year the worship service will be on Sunday, November 23, at 7:00 p.m. at Northview United Methodist Church at 521 Ridgecrest Rd. (visible from Plantation Rd.). Immediately following worship, we will gather for a reception and fellowship. Please mark your calendars and make worship a part of your Thanksgiving tradition. Participating churches are Enon Baptist, Summerdean Church of the Brethren, St. Philip Lutheran, Northview United Methodist, Hollins Church of the Nazarene, and First Baptist of Hollins.
On Thanksgiving Saturday, November 29, 3:00-5:00pm St. Philip will again serve the wider community (the extended family so to speak) a Thanksgiving meal. We will serve those who come to join us in our Fellowship Hall as well as serving a meal, along with Abundant Grace Assembly, at the Melrose Ave Goodwill Jobs Campus on Melrose Ave. We need LOTS people to cook turkeys (save those drippings!), hams, and pies. We will need two crews of people to serve – one here and one at the Goodwill. There is a sign-up sheet in the narthex with duties listed. You can also make financial donations for the Feast – write Feast at Philips in the memo line of your check and place it in the offering. Please see the November newsletter or one of the pastors for more information.
