THX 2017

THX 2017

THX is an annual Thanksgiving outreach of Outward Church. Thanksgiving morning, we'll be serving 220 Salem families in need a fully-cooked Thanksgiving meal, Christmas tree, and presents. This outreach provides us an opportunity to extend God's generosity to our community. Join us in 2017 for our tenth year of THX.

What is THX?

When you think of Thanksgiving, what comes to mind? A big table supporting a feast? Family members reunited, laughing and sharing? The start of the Christmas season? The ability to simply enjoy some of these things is a luxury - a foreign concept, even - for many in our community.

...Outward Church has developed a tradition of serving families in need on Thanksgiving day. We coordinate with several local elementary schools to compile a list of students and their families who would be blessed to receive a meal on Thanksgiving.

​In the days leading up to Thanksgiving...

...dozens of volunteers from Outward and the community prepare the various elements of a full Thanksgiving meal, including turkey, potatoes, gravy, green beans, stuffing and rolls. In addition, we purchase Christmas gifts for children and cut and assemble Christmas trees.

...we come together as a church, along with many from the community, to deliver it all. We go out in teams spread out all across the city, taking not only a meal, Christmas tree, and presents, but most importantly, the "reason for the hope that we have" in Jesus.
