Kinsmen invites anyone to come by on Nov. 25 for a free traditional Thanksgiving meal to-go, complete with turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, gravy, green bean casserole, cranberries, rolls and pie. The event starts at 11 a.m. and meals will be provided to the first 500 people who arrive.
Kinsmen Lutheran Church’s 12th annual Community Thanksgiving Feast will be conducted as a curbside pickup event for the second consecutive year for health and safety reasons, states a church press release.

“We will certainly miss that large gathering again this year. But Kinsmen is ‘in the community for good’ and it’s important that we keep everyone safe while still finding ways to celebrate and encourage one another. We hope these meals will be a small reminder of God’s love for you even in difficult times,” the Rev. Dr. Beth Warpmaeker, senior pastor of Kinsmen Lutheran Church, said in the press release.
One aspect of the day’s activities that will be back in person this Thanksgiving is the 10th “Run for Your Turkey” 5K/10K walk or run.
The annual event serves as a fundraiser for the Thanksgiving Feast. The registration fee through Nov. 21 is $30.
The fun run, or walk, begins at 8 a.m. on Nov. 25 at Kinsmen Lutheran Church, 12100 Champion Forest Drive. The route runs through the Greenwood Forest neighborhood and returns to the finish line at Kinsmen.aside">
Kinsmen will also be hosting a Thanksgiving Eve worship service to prepare for the holiday.
