Midweek Connect

WEDNESDAYS

We all want to be in a place “where everybody knows your name.” But we also want to know more about the God who loves us and how we can follow Him. That’s what’s happening at First Church on Wednesday nights—a place to connect with others and with God.

DINNER

THE COMMUNITY DINNER is served Wednesdays, from 5:30 to 6:15 p.m., in Keith Jones Hall, and is both tasty and nutritious. Cost is $5 for one, or $10 for a family. You don’t need to register—just come!

MENU for Wednesday, November 15 — Back by popular demand is the famous John Bernardi Kielbasa (baked kielbasa with a scoop of fresh mashed potatoes, sprinkled with cheese and sautéed onions), plus vegetables, crisp garden salad, and brownies. There will be a kids’ menu as well. Come have dinner with the family!
