1st Thursday Lunch Group is going on the road!

Start November off right by serving those in need. Rather than have our traditional monthly lunch and program, we’ll be traveling to Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) in Richardson by bus to help assemble hundreds of meals. Our participation makes it possible to send nutritious meals to starving kids worldwide and fight against world hunger. The bus will leave from the church parking lot at 9 AM. We’ll stop at Plano’s famous Ye Ole Butcher Shop for hamburgers before heading home. Bus seats are limited so RSVP soon by calling 214-523-2246 or emailing
