Lenten Potlucks and Programs – March 5 & March 26

The Deacons have planned two Lenten Series potlucks and programs this year. The first will be on Sunday, March 5 at 11:00 am. We will start with a potluck lunch (please, no pork or gelatin products in what you bring). After lunch Jeanean Othman will speak about Muslim beliefs and practices and what local Muslims are experiencing right now. There will be time for questions and discussion. Jeanean has worked closely with us on One Community: One Meal and our interfaith dialogue group. She was raised in our area and is head of the food pantry at The Mosque Foundation in Bridgeview. GLUED will meet at the same time to provide children’s activities.

The second will be on Sunday, March 26 at 11:00 am. We’ll begin by sharing a pot luck lunch and then have some discussion with each other about the words we received on our “Star Gifts” in January and what that word means for us. The children will be included in those discussions, with nursery care provided for the youngest children.
