Emmanuel Meal - Calvary
On Monday, December 16, 2019 we will welcome hundreds of neighbors into our building and celebrate Christmas with the annual Emmanuel Meal. Over one hundred Calvary members will spend weeks preparing for this meal. Each guest will be greeted by members, given wrapped presents that include hats, gloves, and toiletries, and seated at tables decorated for the Christmas feast. But the true gift of the day will come when food is handed from one person to the other. From the moment they enter the building, our guests will smell the aroma of fresh coffee, rich gravy, and sweet cakes. Food will be shared from person to person. Food will link host and guest in this sacred moment when both stomachs and spirits will be filled.
