Guests were served buffet-style at the beautiful West Angeles Crystal Room. The full Thanksgiving buffet included turkey and all the trimmings and a host of desserts. Highlights of the day included the early-afternoon prayer service and praise and worship, making it a warm and wonderful affair full of fellowship and love.
“That’s what West Angeles is all about,” said Bishop Blake. “West Angeles is an institution which reaches out to everyone and loves everyone of all races and all backgrounds, and we’re having a good time today.” As one young attendee expressed, “When people come together at church, they become family.”
West Angeles would like to thank the Media Ministry, the West Angeles Food Services Department, and all of the ministries, departments, congregants, and volunteers who made the day an overwhelming success.
