Brown Bag Lunch

With the upcoming Memorial Day holiday and summer vacation, the Brown Bag Lunch Ministry is taking a hiatus from May through August.

We will be back on Tuesday, September 24 with a presentation by Chester County History Center “Many Nations.” Chester County celebrates 300 years of diversity through the lens of migration. From contact between the Lenape and the first European settlers in the 1600s, people from around the world have called Chester County home. Learn about the ways national and international events have led to such a diverse local population that continues to make a significant impact on our community.

Additionally, if you know someone who would benefit from a note of encouragement, well wishes or any other message from our ministry, please contact us and we will add them to our list. We want to ensure we're reaching those who need it most.
