Lenten lunches will be hosted by local congregations in Maplewood on each Wednesday during Lent.  This is an opportunity for the members of the community to gather together, share a meal, and join in a brief time of worship together. The lunches begin at noon and last one hour, including a simple meal followed by a brief devotion shared by the host pastor. Everyone is invited to attend and there is no need to make a reservation. While there is no charge for the lunches, a free will offering will be taken at each lunch; money from these offerings will be given to the Weekend on Wheels food pantry at the MRH High school. Here are the dates and locations of the Lenten Lunches for this year:
