WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - A church in Chadbourn wants to make sure everyone has a Thanksgiving dinner. On Thursday, the congregation at First Missionary Baptist Church will serve a traditional Thanksgiving feast to anyone in the Chadbourn community.

“We are going to start preparing the food on Wednesday afternoon so we will be busy at the church then,” says Vicki Dian Frink, Dir. of Christian Education at FMBC. “We will prepare a ‘traditional’ Thanksgiving meal. We are prepared to serve everyone who will attend.”

There is no cost to anyone who attends. Frink says thanks to the contributions of area sponsors, they should not run out of food.

“We are proud to announce that in addition to our church family, our other sponsors are Wal-Mart, Golden Corral, Alpha Kappa Alpha (ΑΚΑ) Sorority, Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, and Delta Sigma Theta Sorority,” Frink said.

The congregation will start serving food at noon.
