There was giving in the air at the Lima Campus of Cornerstone Church as they celebrated their annual "Big Sunday" event with members in the community.

The Big Sunday event featured things for kids and adults alike - but one of the biggest parts of the event was giving away free turkeys to those that may not have been able to afford buying one of their own this year for thanksgiving.  Leadership at Cornerstone Church says that they believe giving back to the community through giving away the turkeys is just the right thing to do.

"This time of year, sometimes people feel awkward if they've gone through a tough season or they don’t have what everyone else has, so those that have more, as a Christian person, you always want to give to someone to show your thanks and your thankfulness for what you have," said Cornerstone Bishop Michael Pitts.

120 turkeys were donated to the church by Family Video, whom cornerstone has been working with for several years - and leaders at the church are always happy to work with family video to make some people's holidays a little sweeter.

"It’s wonderful to have that community involvement - at Cornerstone Church we are all about this community, this is our town, and we believe that it’s our mission to make it better," said Pastor Terri Vonderau.  "When we can partner with other agencies or places like Family Video that are willing to help us do that, we’re already doing the very thing we wanted, which is being an influence in the city."

"It’s wonderful for people like Family Video that care about the community and sometimes when you have a business and have something that is successful, it doesn’t take that much for you to do something this big for somebody else," said Bishop Pitts.
