Celebrate Thanksgiving with OACS


Come join the OACS singles for a Thanksgiving dinner celebration on Saturday, November 17th from 6pm to 8pm at the fellowship hall at First Baptist Church of Forest City.

We will begin with fellowship from 6pm to 6:30pm then join in for a fun Thanksgiving dinner feast!

We will have turkey with mashed potatoes and gravy catered for 100 people. This is a planned-menu dinner. Please select a covered dish or dessert from the list below to bring and share. No chips or snacks please.

The cost is $6 per person to cover the cost of the catered food and the fellowship hall. Several volunteers are needed for this event. Please see the RSVP questions on this Meetup to sign up.

The Thanksgiving dinner is being hosted by First Baptist Church of Forest City, Northland’s Single Purpose ministry, Church in the Son’s Full Throttle ministry, and the International College of Ministry.

 

Begin your celebration of the Thanksgiving season with your extended singles family in a time of love, feasting and fellowship in the LORD!
