A “Meager Meal” on February 14th, 2018

February 14th is Valentine’s Day. It is also Ash Wednesday.

We will observe this most significant day with a “Meager Meal.” Reservations can be made as you normally do for Wednesday night meals. We will not charge for the meal but will ask for donations for the Dragonfly House.

The meal will consist of Pinto Beans, Greens, Onions, Pickles, and Cornbread. Following the meal we will have an intergenerational family discussion on love followed by a brief Ash Wednesday service.

Touching Davidson County with Love.
