Upper James City County Churches Collaborate during Lent

The year 2017 marks the third Lenten partnership of the Upper James City County Ministerium, an ecumenical collaboration of ministers and congregations that share worship and address local needs of the community. During the weeks leading to Easter, these churches will meet in different locations to share a Wednesday evening Lenten supper at 6:00 p.m., then worship service at 7:00 p.m. Offerings will benefit local charities.
