Emmanuel Methodist Church to hold annual Lenten luncheon series

BY: Rikki Cason | February 03, 2013

With the Lenten season beginning on Feb. 13, the Emmanuel Methodist Church will once again be holding their community luncheon series.

Committee chair for the series Christa Caldwell said this is the 56th year the Community Lenten Luncheon series will be held and the weekly event will feature seven speakers.

The series is open to anyone in the community.

Speakers include:

• Rev. Sharon Schaus, former pastor of Emmanuel Methodist Church, will speak on Feb. 13 about a recent mission trip to Central America.

• On Feb. 20, Pete Robinson, the organizer of the annual Peanut Butter, Jelly and Fluff Drive, will speak about local community projects around the area.

• Lockport City Judge William Watson will speak Feb. 27 on activities related to youth.

• Youth will continue to be a topic March 6 when Lockport City School District Superintendent Michelle Bradley speaks.

• On March 13, Mary Brennan-Taylor, senior staff member at the YMCA, will speak about her crusade for proper hospital care for the elderly.

• Lockport Police Chief Lawrence Eggert will speak on March 20.

• Father Albert Sam, a retired pastor, will conclude the series on March 27, focusing the last series on a religious message for Holy Week.

Each of the luncheons takes place at 11:50 a.m. Wednesdays at the Emmanuel Methodist Church, the corner of East Avenue and Washburn Street. Each lunch is concluded by 1 p.m., which Caldwell said is designed for people to attend on their lunch hour.

She said when the series began; it was a lunch hour thing for men only, who worked at the Harrison Place main plant. It has now expanded to welcome people from the entire Lockport area.

The lunch menu varies each week and is catered by Molinaro’s. The women of the church make the desserts for the series.

Menu items include beef on weck, baked chicken and pasta and most meals come with a salad, vegetable and potato.

“Everyone is welcome,” said Caldwell. “We would be thrilled to get more people.”

The cost for the Emmanuel Methodist Church Community Lenten Luncheon is $7.50. No reservations are needed to attend.
