Want some casual conversation and fellowship? The Sunday Lunch Bunch might fill
the bill. The SLB meets on the FOURTH Sunday of the month after the 10 O'clock

All are welcome and invited, and transportation is always available, as needed. If you'd like to know more about SLB, please see Maryann Kurkjian, or speak with an Usher or Greeter.
