2015 Lenten Series: This Lent the Elizabeth Communities of Faith (6 local churches and the chaplaincies at CMC-Mercy and Novant Presbyterian) are again coming together for worship and fellowship each Wednesday at 12 noon. The worship and lunch series begins with Ash Wednesday on February 18th and continues through the Wednesday of Holy Week, April 1st. Our theme for Lent this year is "On the Journey Together," and that is exactly what and who we hope to be: people coming together and seeking together. The Lenten series is a wonderful opportunity to welcome people from all over the Charlotte community and to worship and fellowship together. This year all activities will be held at Caldwell Presbyterian Church. We will hear a variety of voices in worship, with a different church or chaplaincy leading worship each week. The short (30 minute) service will be followed by a soup and bread lunch The hope is that many people can come for worship and soup on their lunch break. Different area restaurants and bakeries will donate the meal each week. A $5 donation for lunch is suggested, and all monies collected will be donated to Loaves & Fishes and the Community Culinary School of Charlotte. We look forward to journeying with all of you this Lent, and hope to see you at our Wednesday gathering.

You can read more about this year’s series in an Observer article here.
