a History of our ecumenical series

Beginning with Ash Wednesday, our area churches meet together for Soup and Study in Lent.

The Host Church provides soups and breads and desserts. A minister from a different church provides some teaching. And then we discuss these things around the table.

For decades our local ecumenical gatherings have been supported by the Kearns Funeral Home family. They sponsor our Ecumenical Ministers Breakfast at a local restaurant each month.
