On the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, the Jesus Center is serving up a hot Thanksgiving meal. Several volunteers show up ahead of time to prep the food, which includes turkeys, mashed potatoes, yams with marshmallows, rolls, pie, jello, and green bean casserole. This is a feast they provide every year, but say this is expected to be one of the biggest years, with 400 or more guests. Volunteers include head chef Andy Hawes, who says he's glad to help out. His wife, Marva Hawes, says the volunteers are ready to go well ahead of time. She says, "All of the cooking is pretty much done, we're just getting ready to serve. It's a lot of work, but there is such a big payoff when you look at the happy faces." This year, a barber shop quartet showed up to sing to the guests as they ate.
