The pastors at Wayman Chapel say giving thanks can happen all year and they hosted a turkey dinner on Sunday, before Thanksgiving.
The Wayman Chapel African Methodist Episcopal Church has invited those in the community for this dinner the last few years.
Typically, the small congregation feeds about 200 for the Thanksgiving meal.
It’s an opportunity to serve and help people in need and give thanks.
“There’s always someone in worse shape than you are, so give God thanks for every day even just or waking you up,” said the Rev. Eddie Laster, associate pastor at Wayman. “Give Him thanks. Thanksgiving is a daily thing, not just a yearly thing.”
“Anytime we can show the love of Christ by the way we interact with others, by the way we look after one another, then we try to look for opportunities to take advantage of those moments and go forth and do that,” said Rev. Simon Bergen, pastor at Wayman.
Wayman Chapel serves a breakfast to the community the forth Saturday of the month from 9 am to noon.
