LOV-C hosting a Supper meeting after Stations on March 13
Following the Stations of the Cross service (6:00, in the brick church) on Friday evening, March 13, the Living our Values Commission will host a conversation over soup and salad about what - based on the values we have declared - we believe we are being called to do as our primary mission in the years ahead. It may be something that builds on current or past missions (Reading Camp, ECHO or our many relief missions) or something for which we have been prepared by the Spirit (Housing, Reconciliation).
Please join us for Stations at 6:00, or come directly to the parish hall around 6:45 to participate in the conversation.
