Hickory – On Saturday November 20th, the Hartzell Memorial United Methodist Church will host its Annual Community Thanksgiving Dinner at 12:00 PM. This event will be jointly sponsored by Hartzell’s Dinner Church and Outreach Committees.Foothills Faith and Friendship

After being offered over a period of several years, this event has become immensely popular. Before COVID-19, those attending the informal gathering were welcomed to enjoy a meal and spend time in fellowship with lay members and the Pastor. Due to COVID, things changed in 2020. Instead of a sit-down fellowship experience, the dinner became a drive-thru/walk-up event which will continue this year.

All are welcome regardless of need. Participants who drive-thru or walk-up will be required to follow directions to receive a meal. Masks are required for all.

This event is funded, in part, by a Fresh Expressions Dinner Church grant.

Hartzell Church is located at 465 South Center Street. Rev. Cassandra Rawls is the pastor.
