Join Us For A Thanksgiving Dinner


Join us for our annual church Thanksgiving Dinner on Sunday, November 24, 2013 after the morning worship. Bring a side dish and a dessert to share and come reflect on the blessings of our church community. Come even if you don’t have time to make a dish! This potluck style meal always has food and dessert overflowing. Offering thanksgiving for God’s love with the fellowship of a meal has become a meaningful tradition at University Park Church of the Brethren.

We’ll have all the traditional fixings including turkey and stuffing and lots of vegetarian sides and of course pie – lots of pie and dessert!
