Hillsboro First Baptist Church (127 S. West Street, Hillsboro) is again honored and privileged to offer free “Feast for The King” Christmas Day meals to the community.
Offered are a dine-in experience at noon or 1 p.m. or curbside pickup of meals from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Please let the church know you are coming by calling (937) 393-1473; texting (937) 240-3535; registering online (www.hillsborofirst.com); or emailing at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please join the church for a hot meal and a festive atmosphere.
The menu consists of ham, turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes & gravy, green beans and a roll.
The meal is free – this is our gift to you. We have enjoyed the company of people who have no home to business owners to bank presidents and everyone in between – all are welcome.
Hillsboro First Baptist Church started their Feast for The King Christmas Day meal in 2011. It began with the church giving meals to the Homeless Shelter. The ministry then grew to provide Christmas Day meals to the community at no charge.
As Christians, we strive to be the “hands and feet of Jesus.” The Feast for The King is a great opportunity to share with others the love we have received from Christ. We think of this as our gift to our community.
Pastor Clay Self explains, “Feast for The King is a great example of how Jesus followers can give to their community with no strings attached. Please enjoy a meal on us.”
There is a table prepared for you. While meals are being served, Christmas carols will be sung, and you will hear a story. There will be two “seatings” to choose from for the dine-in meals: noon or 1 p.m. Please let us know which time you plan to attend.
The process of the curbside pickup of meals is as follows: Travel south on South West Street and pull up to the curb beside the First Baptist Church. (There is a set of glass double doors on the building side as a point of reference.) There will be a decorated “ordering station” and people there where you place your order from your vehicle.
You will then proceed to the stop sign at the intersection of S. West Street and W. Walnut Street and turn right. There will be a decorated tent out by the street where you will park, and your hot meal will be brought to you. You get to stay in your car the whole time. Please note that drive-through orders will begin promptly at 11:30 a.m. (No orders will be filled prior to 11:30 a.m.)
