Concordia Gives Back - BIG TIME The picture above is from "Turkey Blessing 2018," an event Concordia Lutheran Church in Kirkwood, Missouri, held Nov. 18 when its Men's Ministry distributed a whoppin' 1,000 Thanksgiving dinners (meals included spuds, stuffin', gravy, and green beans). While this event was already in the works before we launched this year's GIVES BACK, it shows the tremendous need that is out there.
This was the fourth time Concordia offered this FREE bonanza, which also included the distribution of printed devotions and friendly offers from volunteers to pray with meal recipients alongside their vehicles. Beyond the 1,000 turkeys given away by the church, 250 more turkey dinners were also provided to four other St. Louis organizations: All Nations Church in University City, Christian Friends of New Americans, Caring Ministries, and People of the Book Lutheran Outreach. More than 200 volunteers showed up to lend their time and energy. Well done, brothers, well done!
