Thanksgiving Turkey Prep Starts Now!

Each year, CTR prepares 3,000 meals for our annual Thanksgiving Meal at Monarch Gardens in Appleton. Our hope is that no one in our community spends Thanksgiving Day alone or hungry. You can be a part of this amazing effort by gathering your small group, Bible study or some friends (groups of 6-8 work best) to spend an evening deboning cooked turkeys in the CTR kitchen. Time commitment of 1-2 hours. Email Stacey & Brian Zempel or call 920.209.2075 to sign up!
