Local church serves Thanksgiving meal to those in need


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- A local church held a free Thanksgiving lunch for anyone who attended the 11:30 a.m. service and to any less fortunate folks that couldn't have a Thanksgiving meal.

The St. Luke Amez Church shared its turkey and side dishes with anyone who came to celebrate Thanksgiving Day with them.

The church reaches out to the community as much as it can to encourage peace and happiness this holiday season.

“We’re sharing things with people who don't have homes to share a meal in it's our way of saying thank you to God and to the community, doing what God has called us to do,” Pastor William Johnson said.

St. Luke also gives free meals every Wednesday called the "Hump Day Hookup" in its fellowship hall and the event is open to everyone.
