KEARNEY — Lenten Lunches will be noon-12:50 p.m. every Friday during Lent, starting March 8.

The lunches, sponsored by several local congregations, will take place in the fellowship hall at First United Methodist Church at 4500 Linden Drive.

This year’s theme is “Fruits of the Tree: The Fruits of the Spirit and the Cross.” Speakers from various congregations will share their journey toward the spiritual fruits they discover as they walk with Christ to the cross. Those fruits may be love, joy, peace, patience, kindness and other virtues.

A $5 donation pays for the meal, supplies and assistance to the Jubilee Center.
