The Barton County Association of Churches announces the 2017 Lenten Luncheons. The purpose of these weekly ecumenical gatherings is to provide an opportunity to join together in Christian fellowship and to create space for personal reflection and spiritual growth during Lent.
The luncheons begin serving at noon – not earlier – and continue to 1 p.m. on six consecutive Wednesdays beginning March 8.
A freewill offering is suggested to help defray the expenses incurred by the host congregation. The public is welcome to attend all of the luncheons.
