A longstanding tradition at the Congregational Church of Amherst, the meal brings together children and seniors, church and community. The bustle in our kitchen and community room sees floured hands and sometimes floured faces, mashers, peelers and loving hands working. The children learn to share the kitchen space. They learn that friendly conversation makes a task lighter, and they start out the holiday season with more giving than receiving.
Children will be preparing the lunch in the community room and in the kitchen during church school. Parents should meet their children there after worship. Children will accompany their teachers to the apartments, returning to the church around 1:00 p.m. Parents are encouraged to take part in this traditional event of friendship and service.
