Cypress Church To Feed Hundreds On Thanksgiving Day

On Thanksgiving Day students and adults from Cypress Church will join together with many area churches to serve Thanksgiving dinner to thousands of needy area residents. Early in the morning on November 25th a group of about 75 volunteers from the Cypress Church Student Ministries and the "Knights of the Holy Grill" will head for South Central Los Angeles.

The annual Thanksgiving Day Celebration is organized by Pastor Joe Browne of "Faith in Christ Ministries." Pastor Joe has tremendous compassion for people in need. “Not only is this an opportunity for organizations to unite by responding to the needs of the poor,” he says, “It’s an opportunity to demonstrate the love of Christ.

Several hundred volunteers of all ages will prepare turkey, potatoes, dressing, gravy, beverages, dessert and more. After a time of praise and thanksgiving to God they will spread out to many different locations where almost 5,000 people will receive a hearty meal.

The Cypress Church team plans to serve at MacArthur Park near Wilshire and Alvarado Streets in Los Angeles. They expect hundreds of hungry homeless people waiting to be fed. The buffet line will open at noon the volunteers will keep serving as long as supplies last.

Cypress Church cooperates with many other churches, ministries and missionary organizations to serve the needs of the local community as well as India, Mexico, New Orleans, Ecuador and other locations around the world. The church campus is located at 6143 Ball Road just east of Valley View. More volunteers are needed and information about Thanksgiving Day service opportunities is available at (714) 952-3001 or email: Sunday Worship Services are held at 8:45 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. The church website is located at:
