We will send a group to St. Mark's UMC to prepare a hot meal for the homeless. It has been over a year since we have been able to worship and serve the homeless population in the area. The rest of us will gather at Gretna UMC for 10:00 worship - in person or on Facebook Live - offering a special prayer for those serving at St. Mark's.
