Community Feasts Project
A major church outreach project is our "Community Feasts Project." On Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day, hundreds of people are treated to a free, full holiday meal with all the trimmings in our fellowship hall. Countless volunteers are organized by our church members to create a festive, caring atmosphere for anyone who wishes to come. It is an extraordinary experience of true community as people from differing walks of life, religions, ages, abilities and socio-economic backgrounds gather together for food and fellowship.
Thank you to all the donors, volunteers and guests who made the 2012 Christmas Feast such a success!

Our 2012 Thanksgiving Feast was a huge success, thanks to our wonderful volunteers and the support of the entire Westport community. Our special thanks go out to all the wonderful people at Christ & Holy Trinity Episcopal Church who so graciously opened their doors for our feast.

The Thanksgiving Feast and Coleytown Elementary School
Every year for the past 20 years or so, all Coleytown Elementary students have furnished decorations for the Saugatuck Thanksgiving Day Dinner. It's a tradition in the Coleytown Community! This year they decorated tablecloths, created decorative table centerpieces and wall murals, and made greeting cards for each place setting, all conveying the spirit and purpose of Thanksgiving.
See the gallery below for pictures of some of the wonderful decorations they have created for the 2011 and 2012 Thanksgiving Feasts.
