Lenten Program- When I Was… Hungry

Hungry

This year during Lent, Christ’s Church will again meditate on Matthew 25:35-46 in which Christ told his disciples that when they serve the hungry, the thirsty, the stranger, the naked, the sick or the imprisoned they were serving Christ, himself.

On Sunday, February 14th (the 1st Sunday of Lent), during Coffee Hour after church, we will put together bagged meals for the men and women who utilize the food services at St. Peter’s in Port Chester.

We need your help to bring the food items to make the lunches, so please click here to choose which items you will bring bring and then drop them off in the church kitchen before the 10:00 am service on Sunday February 14th.

Thank you!
