Annual Thanksgiving Dinner is Friday; Methodist Church Hands the Tradition Over to Oakridge Assembly of God

Angie Kimble of Oakridge Assembly of God has made over 600 sweet rolls for Sallisaw’s Community Thanksgiving Dinner Friday at the church on south U.S. Highway 59. 

The ladies at Oakridge Assembly of God have prepared a complete homemade turkey dinner, with all the fixings, for the annual Thanksgiving Dinner. The dinner will be served from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. Friday at the church, on U.S. Highway 59 south in Sallisaw. The cost is $10 per adult and $5 per child age 10 and under.

The membership of Oakridge Assembly of God has pitched in to prepare and present Sallisaw’s annual Thanksgiving Turkey dinner from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. Friday at the church.

The previous 43 annual dinners were prepared by the United Methodist Women from Sallisaw’s First United Methodist Church to raise money for their many missions. But they are a bit tired from all the cooking, and have turned the reins, and the ovens, over to the Assembly of God women this year.

Head cook Angie Kimble said, “This is a church-wide effort. Everyone is helping.”

Kimble herself made over 600 homemade rolls and the ladies cooked over 30 turkeys and made all the fixings and desserts. Kimble said they are expecting to feed about 500 on Friday.

The meals are $10 for adults and $5 for children age 10 and under. Diners may eat in or carry out and just need to tell the servers how they want their meal. There is no need to call in carry-out orders.

Oakridge Assembly of God is on U.S. Highway 59 south.

Mullen said the dinner is just the beginning of the church’s holiday events. On Dec. 5 and 6 Oakridge Assembly of God will again present its Living Nativity, she said.

“It is totally awesome,” Mullen said. “People visit four and five times.”
