To the Ocean City community,
As the Pastor of Ocean City Baptist Church I want to thank the community and my church for all their hard work in serving another great Thanksgiving meal.
On Thanksgiving day, Ocean City Baptist Church opened their doors and hearts to feed the community.
We started this tradition 41 years ago because we felt that nobody should go hungry or be alone for the holiday.
This year’s dinner would not have been possible without the generous donations of the following businesses: American Legion Post 166, Bank of Ocean City, Benchmark Property Services, DiCarlo Printing in Salisbury, Elks Lodge #2645, Humphrey’s Foundation Inc., Taylor Bank, the Wednesday Night Ladies’ Bowling League, and, of course, the members and visitors of OCBC.
Love God, Love Others, Serve at the Beach is the motto of Ocean City Baptist Church. And it was truly lived out in the 110 volunteers that showed up to help out.
This year we served 218 guests, [had] 238 take outs and 175 deliveries for a total of 631 meals served.
A few people need to be thanked for their individual efforts and they are Anne Russo, Paul DeHuarte Sr., Robin Derrickson, Melanie Corbin, Anna Smith, and Lucy Sydnor for their leadership.
All the glory goes to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I am privileged to be part of this annual tradition and we look forward to being part of your next Thanksgiving!
