Wed lunch mtg and other announcements

Dear PHCF,

Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. (Mt 11:28). In remembrance of Lent starting tomorrow (for those of you who observe), our Wednesday lunchtime gathering will be a prayer meeting -- time to reflect and share, and to lift up our adoration, confession, thanksgiving, and supplications up to the Most High. Hope to see you there!

Teresa and Shawn
