Goshen News

---- — Organizers of the Christmas Day Dinner at First Presbyterian Church, 215 E. Lincoln Ave., Goshen, say the event is a time to celebrate the birth of the Savior and to share fun, food and fellowship with the community.

The dinner, in its 15th year, is open to anyone from the community — singles, couples and families. Last year, more than 600 meals were served and/or delivered. The dinner is served at no cost.

The church doors will open at 12:30 p.m. Dec. 25. Starting at 1 p.m., guests will be seated and served a traditional holiday meal. Volunteers from First Presbyterian and the Michiana area will serve until 2 p.m. The pastors will be available for prayer and spiritual guidance during the event.

No reservations are needed for the dinner served at the church. Carry-out is available, as well as delivery.

For advance-ordered drive-through carry-out or delivery, call the church at 533-7845 (Monday and Wednesday from 9 a.m. to noon; Tuesday and Thursday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.).

Important: The last day to reserve meals for delivery and for advance-ordered drive-through carry-out is Dec. 19 at 3 p.m. If there is no one to take an order, call during office hours.
