  WOMAN'S FELLOWSHIP

For March, Women's Fellowship will be held on Tuesday, March 21, 2017 at noon for a potluck at the church.

We will be doing something new this year during the Lenten season. Each Wednesday of Lent, starting on March 1st (Ash Wednesday), we will be enjoying a meal at 6:00 p.m. March 1st and April 5th will be hosted Family Fun-N-Food Cuisine, and on the other Wednesdays we will enjoy Lenten Soup and Sandwiches. At 6:30 pm we will have a short devotional and prayer service, followed by choir at 7:00. The church will provide bread and meat for the sandwiches and we are hoping to have soup brought in each time. There is a sign-up sheet in the Narthex for the soup. We would like to have two different types of soup each month but one person does not have to bring both. Please come and join us for this time of fellowship and worship. The dinner is FREE!
