Thanksgiving and Christmas. People love celebrating these two holidays that are almost a month apart. But the Grace Brethren Church of Bowling Green, Ohio, celebrates them at the same time!
The church will host its third annual “Christhankmas” (Christ-thank-mas) meal on December 21. Later in the week, the church will also have a Christmas Eve service. Pastor Curtis C. Miller says it is basically “a week of celebrating.”
The Christhankmas meal begins at Noon after the regular Sunday morning service. The church provides the meal, while the elders prepare it. Those who attend are not required to bring anything. All the food, including smoked turkey, is served buffet style.
