As fall slowly moves into winter, we have begun to alternate between sandwich lunches and soup lunches. Our amazing presenters continue to teach and entertain us, and the fellowship supports and inspires us.
This weekly event is open to everyone (although we don’t provide child care), so if you find you have a lunch hour free, please join us in the church hall, starting at 11:30 on Wednesdays, for coffee and fellowship, followed by devotions, lunch for $5, and a different presentation each week. We adjourn at 1:00.
For regularly updated information, see the bulletin each Sunday, our W@K “Long sheet” (available at the Welcome Desk), the website, and the bulletin board by the lounge. If you have any questions or comments about the programme, phone (519 497‐9534) or e‐mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) Ellen McIntosh.
