Lenten services: Soup, bread, fellowship, and a special worship during the season of Lent at Hope Lutheran

Share supper, conversation, and evening prayer on Wednesday evenings during Lent. Invite your friends to come for a light meal and our Lenten study, “Faces of Christ.” We’ll learn about ELCA World Hunger’s accompaniment of communities around the world. Over the five weeks, we will reflect on who Jesus is for us, with us, and among us today. We’ll close with evening prayer.

Join us at 6 p.m. at Hope Lutheran Church.

ADDRESS: 2830 May Road, El Sobrante CA 94803
