Long Creek Hosts Community Christmas Dinner

February 10, 2015 | Leland Spencer

Sixty people met at the fellowship hall of the Long Creek (Ore.) Church Dec. 10, 2014, for a communitywide Christmas dinner and fellowship. 

Larry and Anita Griffith prepared the meal with help from Charity Morris. Tim Greenlaw, from the Walla Walla, Wash., area, led some Christmas carols, and Pearl Spencer provided most of the decorations. Sherry Schultz planned and coordinated the entire evening.

This is the second year the Long Creek Church has worked to provide this meal of community Christmas fellowship. 

Organizers heard many good comments from those attending. Some were thankful for a gathering in the warm fellowship hall, instead of riding cold hay wagons around caroling as they had done in the past. The food, entertainment, decorations and companionship received special praise from many of those attending. Door prizes were given out and contributed to the laughter and enjoyment of the occasion. 

Christmastime proved an ideal occasion to get this small community together to praise the Lord and eat together.
