Upper County Churches Share Lenten Worship

The Upper James City County Ministerium, a partnership of Williamsburg/Toano churches, will present Wednesday evening Lenten worship services throughout the six weeks that lead up to Easter. This is the second year that churches and clergy in the Upper County area have come together in the spirit of ecumenism to share Lenten worship, coordinated by Al Glindemann of Our Saviour's Lutheran Church. The services are Wednesday evenings, with refreshments offered at 6:30 p.m., and worship beginning at 7:00 p.m. Each service will take a free will offering for a different area nonprofit organization. All are welcome! Dates and locations for 2016:
