You don't have to be in need to participate.

They've been able to make memories.

This year, we anticipate a crown of over 400. "Even if we only had a handful, we'd probably still do it because that handful needs somewhere to go", Smoak said.

An offering is also collected to help the board with operating and maintenance fees and the renovation of the church.

Nearly all the food GracePoint serves is donated by the congregation, Miller said.

"It is an opportunity to interact with the community, particularly with those who don't have family in the area", said Sharon Parsons, church officer manager and a Thanksgiving volunteer since 2001.

Volunteers cooked and served all the meals while students sang for everyone there.

"Everything you would have for your Thanksgiving dinner at home, we give you here", Hamilton said.

It takes more than just food to make the annual dinner a success, Hamilton said.

For this service, the First Christian Church board conducts a gathering of in-kind donations of canned goods and nonperishable goods for Houston County S.H.A.R.E.

Donations are used to purchase turkeys from Hy-Vee, and each participating family received a "coupon" from the church on November 9 or November 16.

November 22 is the distribution.
