Christian Life Center has enjoyed a Thanksgiving dinner with its congregation and also the community.

The church invites the community to join it again this year. The dinner will be held Sunday at Fallon Convention Center, 100 Campus Way. Doors open at noon and the church will serve until 3 p.m.

Almost 900 people were served last year at the dinner, including church members, Naval Air Station Fallon personnel and community residents. Christian Life Center expects to serve more than that amount this year.

Congregation volunteers will help with greeting, serving, kitchen service, table and kitchen cleanup. The Christian Life Center youth group will help with table setup, busing and cleanup. The men from the church volunteer each year to thaw, clean and season the turkeys in preparation for the meal.

According to the Christian Life Center, the meal will be purchased, cooked and served by the congregation. The menu consists of turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, cranberry sauce, rolls and desserts.

To make sure there is room for all who attend, members of the community and NAS Fallon service members and their families are invited at noon, and the church congregation will eat at 2 p.m.
