Thanksgiving Eve - PIE FEST

WEDNESDAY, NOV 26 - 7:30pm
Saint Matthew Lutheran Church
Walnut Creek, CA 94598 (map)

We gather together on Thanksgiving Eve for worship and a pie fest each year. This year we will be joined by the Hills Vineyard and Shelter Covenant Churches from Concord.

Shelter’s worship leader, Justin McRoberts, will be presenting an evening of worship and inspiration. He is an internationally known Christian musician, a highly respected singer, songwriter and speaker who, over the past nine years, has carved out a niche for himself in the independent music scene. Central to Justin’s work is advocacy on behalf of the poor and oppressed through Compassion International, the International Justice Mission and the Blood Water Mission. Compassion International is an international Christian “adoption” group, that connects Christians who want to help poor children and their families throughout the world. One hundred percent of the monthly support given goes to that child and their family! There is no other Christian group who has that type of efficiency. This evening, we will have the opportunity to adopt a child, if we so choose.

Our Pie Fest, which follows worship, is a great time of fellowship as well as a means by which we collect dozens of pies that are passed along to groups that are serving those who cannot afford a Thanksgiving Dinner. We ask you to bring two pies—one to share
that evening and one to give away.

Invite your friends to join us for this unique evening. And don’t forget the pies!
