ALBION – Christ Church, an Episcopal congregation in Albion, served 325 chicken dinners on Wednesday with proceeds to go towards the historic church’s maintenance fund.

Faith Smith is getting one of the chickens for a to-go container. Smith leads the community kitchen at the church, where dinner is available for the community on Friday evenings.

Besides chicken, dinner included corn on the cob, potatoes, a roll, and cookies.

Andrew Cheverie, right, and his father Al enjoyed the chicken dinners at the church fellowship hall.

Christ Church shares its building for chuch services with the First United Methodist Church of Albion. That congregation left its building in April and has been meeting at Christ Church since then. A sign was recently added to note the United Methodists meet there for church at 9:30 a.m. on Sundays.
