Lenten Soup Suppers – Wednesday Lenten Soup Suppers. Dinner at 5:30 p.m. Program begins at 6:00 p.m. Our theme this year will revolve around our five core values: Worship, Faith, Service, Community and Beauty.

We have soup makers for almost every week. If you would like to bring salad and/or bread, please add your name to the sign-up sheet at church or in the office. Lenten Suppers continue: March 2, 9, and 16. This week’s theme will be Service.
