'Sermons a la Carte' to start on Feb. 13

Thursday, January 31, 2013

The 28th Annual Sermons a la Carte program begins on Feb. 13 (Ash Wednesday). This is a program which is offered by the Cherokee churches each Lenten season.

Ministers from the different area congregations take turns delivering a message each Wednesday from 12:05 p.m. - 12:30 p.m. at Memorial Presbyterian Church, 127 E. Willow St. in Cherokee, and congregations from around the area also take turns serving a delicious lunch following the service at 12:30 p.m. The cost of the meal is $3.

This year's theme for the Sermons a la Carte is "Our Father... A Journey Through the Lord's Prayer."

This year's Ecumenical Giving will be distributed between Cherokee County Work Services, C.A.P., Food Pantry, CADA, Mid-Sioux Opportunities, and the CCMA.
