Lenten Lunch meditations have been a tradition in McMinnville for several decades. This year the McMinnville Area Ministerial Fellowship will be holding events every Wednesday during Lent at First United Methodist Church downtown across the street from the library.
The services are free and open to the public. They start a few minutes after 12 p.m., and will wrap up as close to 12:30 p.m. as possible. A soup and sandwich lunch will be served in the church fellowship hall after each service.
Each Wednesday, a different church will be hosting the meal and their minister will be speaking at the service. Each week’s service will also be broadcast on WCPI radio.
The weekly schedule is:
Feb. 26 -- John Purdue, First United Methodist Church
March 4 -- Richard O’Connor, Westwood Church of Christ
March 11 -- Jeff Owens, First Baptist Church
March 18 -- Jimi Lancaster, First Presbyterian Church
March 25 -- Sommer Worley, Christ United Methodist Church
April 1 -- Steve Grayson, New Bybee United Methodist Church
April 8 -- Ben Randall, St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church
