Wednesday feast in works

Sierra Community Church’s Food Line Ministry is a volunteer program which provides hot meals for the hungry every Wednesday from noon to 1 p.m.

“It is for anyone,” said Mark Bartholomew, administrator of the Food Line Ministry which was created in 1989. “The doors are wide open to anybody who needs the service.”

With the help of Dan Blackwell, also an administrator of the program, Bartholomew will be preparing a complete, traditional Thanksgiving dinner to be served Wednesday from noon to 1 p.m.

Raley’s and Safeway will donate baked goods and produce, and Hard Rock Cafe donated five turkeys for the program’s Thanksgiving event.

“I’m preparing them (turkeys) as we speak,” Bartholomew said on Monday evening. “I cook them in chicken broth and the meat just falls off the bone, so there isn’t any carving involved. It will be all ready for Wednesday.”

According to Bartholomew, the meal will be served by volunteers who want to help make a difference.

“We do this out of the kindness of our hearts and because that’s what the Bible teaches us to do,” Bartholomew said.

The Thanksgiving meal will be served at Sierra Community Church, located at Sierra Boulevard and Kubel Ave. Complimentary Bibles will be available.

Donations can be made through Sierra Community Church.
