Thanksgiving Feast

One of our most cherished traditions at North Star is the Thanksgiving Feast!

We share a meal of soup, bread and fruit. Everyone is involved in contributing to this special day, from providing ingredients to making decorations, to serving the community. We truly hope you’ll be able to join us and make memories together.

Please return your invitation to the Feast as soon as you can, so we can plan how much soup to prepare. If you need another invitation, please be sure to let us know.

The Feast is all about family and community!
