Mid-Week Soup, Supper and Study

This year we gather each Wednesday from 5:30pm-7:00pm to enjoy soup, bread and discussion around the ELCA's focus of 40 Days of Giving centered on World Hunger. Each week we will explore a new aspect of World Hunger, its connection to Scripture and our Spiritual Life as called disciples of Christ. We hope this Lenten study, devotion and meal will nourish mind, body and soul.

There is a daily devotion you can sign-up for as well: Devotion Sign-Up
