From Sharalyne King of St. Stephen’s, Longview:
St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church of Longview, WA has developed a congregational goal to reconnect with each other from the limitations and isolating effects of the 2020-2022 COVID-19 pandemic. The theme of our goal is Cultivate. John 15:8 is our guide. Our parish wanted to try a new event within Food and Fellowship for the Lenten Season. The new event was our first Lenten Fish Fry that was held March 31, 2023. The Holy Spirit blessed us with 80 attendees, bountiful food and immense joy in fellowshipping with one another. We are looking forward to repeating the event for next year.
