Supporting Feast of Plenty

Sadly, during COVID, we cannot conduct the Feast of Plenty as we have in the past. We cannot cook, serve, or deliver meals, but we are going to provide food through a catering company to three homeless shelters in Springfield. If you have volunteered in the past and would like to help, we encourage you to give financially by going to this link: https://cbcchurchfamily.churchcenter.com/giving/to/thanksgiving-feast-of-plenty or make your check to Central Baptist Church with “FOP” in the memo. Thank you so much for all you do and have done to feed the food insecure on Thanksgiving Day!
