The second annual community-wide Bible Appreciation Luncheon and Thanksgiving gathering has been scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 10 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Golden Corral Family Restaurant, 2004 W. Broadway. And the public is invited to attend.

The event is sponsored by Sedalia Bible Academy and is planned in observance of the 77th National Bible Week, which will be celebrated during Thanksgiving week in major US cities.

A highlight of the Sedalia event will be recitation of the entire Sermon on the Mount (chapters 5- 7 of Matthews' Gospel) by Sedalian Scott Hunnell. In last year's event, Hunnell recited the entire New Testament of Epistle James.

Music will be provided by singers from the Hispanic Baptist Church and the Slavic Evangelical Baptist Church, both of Sedalia. Congregational singing will also be part of the program.

Speakers will be from churches in Sedalia and Jefferson City.

Those planning to attend are asked to come before 11 a.m., pay their way to the meal and be seated in the large dining area. No appeal will be made for donations.
