MEDINA – The annual Lenten lunches at the First Presbyterian Church will begin on Thursday this week, according to Barb Hancock, a member of Medina Area Association of Churches, who sponsor the lunches.

The lunches will be served every Thursday through April 7, with a different local church preparing the meal each week. These include the First Presbyterian Church (ham or turkey sandwich, soup, fruit cup), First Baptist Church (beef on weck), Oak Orchard Assembly of God (lasagna and salad), Abundant Harvest Methodist Church in Millville (sloppy Joes, pie), the Grove Methodist Church in Medina (ham and scalloped potatoes) and Alabama Full Gospel Church (pulled pork).

The theme of the message each week will be “Jesus’ Suffering” from the Book of Hebrews. Messages will be shared by the Rev. William Wilkinson, Pastor Michael Stephenson, Pastor Dan Thurber, Pastor Garry McCaffery, Jim McMoil and pastor Russ Peters.

Serving begins at noon with a suggested donation of $5. Take-outs are available at 11:45 a.m.

Proceeds from the lunches will benefit Orleans County Meals on Wheels and Crop Walk, Hancock said.

Masks will be encouraged in and out of the building.
