Simple Soup Supper And Lenten Prayer Series Continues At St. Francis

Wednesday, March 19, 2014
The Simple Soup Supper and Lenten Prayer Series at St. Francis of Assisi Episcopal Church, 7555 Ooltewah-Georgetown Road, following the 5 p.m. liturgy, will continue throughout Lent. Stations of the Cross will take place every Wednesday during Lent at 6 p.m.
 

Our Walk In Love Shoe Drive has begun and runs through Lent.  If you can help, please bring walking shoes (new or nearly new) for both women and men. New socks are appreciated too. These contributions help support Community Kitchen who ministers to the homeless, including their feet.

The Healthy Eating Series at 3:30 p.m. continues through Sunday, March 30.  March is National Nutrition Month. On Sunday afternoons during Lent, before the 5 p.m. service, we are going to have an informal, interactive, participatory and informative series of get-togethers. We will be presenting educational material but we know that all of us have good ideas on how to make simple changes in our diet that will improve what we are eating. The theme March 23 will be "What Kind of Food Should I Eat? How Should I Eat?" 

For more information, contact Kathy Landstreet at 605-4840 or Ellen Hamm at 779-7435.
