Family Lenten Soup Suppers

Wednesdays in March from 6:00pm-7:30pm

Lenten Soup Suppers are back! Join us for delicious meals and community reflections on gratitude. There will be something for everyone! Adults will share stories of gratitude and discuss prayers of thanksgiving in the Book of Common Prayer, children will spend time playing together and talking about gratitude, and the youth group will work on a Stations of the Cross project. Please sign up so we know you are coming!

Sign up for Soup Supper

This year our annual Lenten project is to help the congregation of St. Raphael in the Diocese of Southwest Florida. In September, Hurricane Ian ravaged the southwest coast of Florida leaving this parish with nothing. Find out what we can do to help.
