Community Lenten Worship

Services and Luncheons 

The Orion Area Ministerial Association is once again sponsoring Friday noontime worship services and soup/sandwich luncheons during Lent. Different area churches will host each of the gatherings. All are  invited to join their sisters and brothers in Christ for worship, good food and fellowship. A donation of $2.00 per person is requested for each Lenten luncheon to help offset the cost of the meal. The theme this year is drawn from 1 Corinthians 13. “Agape is…”.
