Prayer, donations, auction and biryani lunch at this Thanksgiving Day at CSI church

The community at CSI Church of the Good Shepherd came together to say thanks to God this Sunday at its TTK Road campus and then, it was celebration time, with sale of foodstuff, auction of donated articles and a biryani lunch.
The Thanksgiving Festival is celebrated every year on the second Sunday of September at this church.  Members of this congregation brought in offerings, either in cash or in kind and these were placed at the altar.
The Sunday service was held at 7.30 am. After the service, various fellowships – youth, men, women, the church choir and the Sunday class students – put up food stalls and served breakfast, snacks and cool drinks.
Some games stalls were put up too to provide some simple fun.
The auction of donated articles was also held. Church-goer Paripoorani Packiaraj said that  each family is encouraged to bring in at least one article and bid for one article at the auction. The proceeds of this auction will be used for charitable and missionary purposes.

The event was organised by  the Bishop chaplain Pastor Ernest  Selvadurai and the Pastorate Committee. The secretary of the committee is Y. Bhuvanesh Kumar and the treasurer is Rajini Kannan.
Says Bhuvanesh Kumar, “We had piping hot biryani for lunch and it was served to all members of the congregation.”
