The churches of Emo are hosting a five-week Lenten worship series with a soup-and-sandwich lunch.
The services will take place each Wednesday at noon at Knox United Church.
The cost is a $4 donation for lunch, with proceeds going to the United Church Mission & Service Fund and a local project.
The schedule is as follows: March 13 (Rev. Eileen Bragg), March 20 (St. Patrick’s Catholic Church), March 27 (Rev. Frances Flook), April 3 (Rev. Ralph Fluit), and April 10 (Rev. Kasey VanderVeen).
All are welcome to attend!

The abattoir in Emo has a list of things that need to be addressed that were pointed out during the audit process. They have decided to ask for help and do this as a work-bee.
Please join them on Saturday, March 23 at 8:30 a.m. and help them tackle these issues (lunch will be provided). If you would like to see the list of work, contact Kim Jo Bliss.
Organizers look forward to seeing you and thank everyone in advance for their help. We are fortunate to live in a community that joins together and makes things happen!

The next Men’s Fellowship Breakfast will be held this Saturday (March 16) at 8 a.m. at the Emo Legion.
