Area residents and guests can skip the tedious process of making Thanksgiving dinner and instead, enjoy a full holiday meal prepared by one of two local churches next Thursday, or, donate to various churches and organizations throughout the county.
For the 41st year, the Ocean City Baptist Church will host its annual Thanksgiving dinner at the North Division Street parish from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
“The ultimate purpose of Thanksgiving is it’s a day you should be with family and we just don’t think anyone should be alone, so we want everyone to be a part of our family if they don’t have one,” Pastor Sean Davis said. “It’s a nice warm meal filled with fellowship and everyone is so friendly.”
Guests have the option of dining in, carrying food out or calling in advance for delivery. Last year, the church prepared nearly 600 meals that were either eaten inside the church, carried out or delivered.
