Thanksgiving Observances

PAPA offers to the community an annual Interfaith Thanksgiving Worship service on the Sunday before Thanksgiving.  The service includes a wide representation of our membership and the community.  Various member congregations host the service from year to year.

PAPA also offers a free Thanksgiving Dinner for the community on Thanksgiving Day.  This is a very large effort, the combined work of a large committee of volunteers who work for months to make this dinner happen. [You can view pictures from the most recent Dinner in our Picture Gallery.]

At the end of the Dinner people line up to receive extra food to take home with them.

We also collect names for homebound individuals to whom our volunteers deliver their Dinner. Each year we serve over 100 meals to folks at home!
