ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Dozens of residents gathered for a night of giving thanks and fellowshipping over a hot meal.

With held hands and bowed heads, New Birth Fellowship Church welcomed all who would come on Monday night. The pastor prayed over the food that fed the bodies and the souls of those in the community.

Eric Collins appreciated the church's Thanksgiving kindness.

Collins received the invitation from his son who attends the New Birth Fellowship Christian Academy.

"It's refreshing to see a church not just the school but the church give back to the community," said Collins.

Folks lined up for the typical Thanksgiving fixings: turkey, dressing, green beans.

"They went out to be a blessing to the community," said Collins.

Coordinator Angelia Daniels hopes to do just that.

"Open up to the public so we can show some love by feeding and caring," said Daniels. 

"We tend to be so busy centered around our own individual lives that we forget that there are others that are less fortunate than us," said Daniels.

"The season of thanksgiving is not only giving thanks to God for what he has done for us, but in giving thanks to him, we give thanks to him by serving our neighbor," said Collins.

The church plans to spend more time reaching to those in need in the coming year.
