Lenten Lunches with Presbyterian Neighbors

Join with Presbyterian neighbors from around the Wilmington area for our 2nd annual Lenten Lunch series.

Each Tuesday during Lent we will gather at one of our churches for a “semi-brown bag” lunch and a Lenten program.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Question:  What is a “semi-brown bag” lunch?

Answer:  Please bring a sandwich or other “main dish” for yourself.  The host church will provide drinks, simple sides, and desserts.

Question:  May I attend a lunch at a church other than my own?

Answer:  Yes!  Please do!  We hope to meet some of our Presbyterian neighbors as we take this Lenten journey.  Come, and bring a friend!

Question:  Do I have to be good at painting, pottery, or singing to come?

Answer:  No!  All you need is a willingness to come and journey with your fellow sisters and brothers in Christ.  All of our activities will assume that everyone is a beginner, and you don’t have to do anything that doesn’t make sense for you.

Do bring a sandwich!!!
