Mount Olive Baptist Church Set to Host Annual Community Feast
Members Plan to Usher in the Holiday Season by Serving Their Neighbors
CENTREVILLE, VA– The Mount Olive Baptist Church is kicking off this season of giving with a festive family-style dinner for its neighbors in the community on Sat., Dec.8, from 12-4 p.m. in its banquet hall at 6600 Old Centreville Rd.
"The event we're calling a Community Feast, is another way for our congregation to live out its commitment to service and giving by feeding and fellowshipping with our neighbors and friends. We know some of them, but then there are others who we need to get to know in the surrounding area. This free event is a great way to do just that," says the Rev. Dr. Eugene Johnson, pastor of the 2,000-member worship center.
"Those who come this year as our guests can look forward to a time of wonderful fellowship, as well as great music and food," Johnson added. While the Community Feast is open to all, outreach will include neighbors in need. The first Community Feast was held a year ago and just months after the congregation moved into its new church facility. Mount Olive members will be on hand to serve, greet, entertain, and dine with their guests. To make the experience a rich and welcoming one for all, Mount Olive plans Spanish-language translation for guests who need it and will offer free transportation to those who want to attend but have no way of getting to the feast. In addition, the banquet hall and church are handicap and wheelchair accessible.
Mount Olive Baptist Church, a longtime presence and supporter in the Centreville area, is also partnering with its neighbors to make the second Annual Community Holiday Feast a success. There are opportunities for merchants, individuals, and organizations to donate turkeys for the menu.
