Hosts would provide coffee, tea and dessert for about 8 to 10 people. Each site will be given a small Lenten
study booklet for some small group discussion (about half an hour to 3/4 of time.) Each group can choose
how to work through the booklet. The congregation will sign up for whatever group they would like. Please
speak to Rev. Soble ASAP if you can be a host home.
