WSS Tilapia Dinners continue for Lenten Season
The traditional Lenten fried or baked tilapia dinners, served in the White Sulphur Springs Community Center behind Emanuel United Methodist Church downtown, began Feb. 24 and will continue each Friday through Mar. 31 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. The meal consists of tilapia, scalloped potatoes, cole slaw, hard rolls, and your choice of drinks and desserts.
“We held the price down as much as we could, considering inflation,” notes Andrew Wrzosek of Waitesville, grand knight of the Greenbrier Valley Council 8689 Knights of Columbus, the sponsoring organization.
Eat in or to-go dinners are available at $15 for adults, $8 for children 12 and under, and under 5 years old are free. “We are offering an extra piece of tilapia for an additional $5,” he added. “This is the first time we have offered eat in dinners since the Lenten season in 2020, offering take out only for past two years and we are pleased to offer these methods of service once again.”
Proceeds from the dinners go to the community, youth, church, and service projects of the Greenbrier Valley Council which consists of members from Pocahontas, Greenbrier, Monroe, and eastern Fayette counties.
The most recent major project was purchasing and distributing 96 new children’s winter coats in the four county area, in cooperation with the Family Resource Network of Pocahontas County; the Wellspring of Meadow River Country, Family Resource Network of Monroe County; Alderson Elementary School, Smoot Elementary School, White Sulphur Springs Elementary School, and gently used winter wear through Wellspring, Family Resource Network of Monroe County; Lewisburg/Fairlea Food Pantry; and the Donald Davis Memorial Toy Fund of Summers and western Greenbrier County.
For further information and directions to the dinners, telephone the office of the Catholic Churches of the Greenbrier Valley 304-536-1813 or Knights of Columbus 304-645-1373.
New Growth Group at Rhema Christian Center
It turns out, giving up your “right” to be offended can be one of the most freeing, healthy, simplifying, relaxing, refreshing, stress-relieving, encouraging things you can do. It’s a radical, provocative idea that – We’re not entitled to get offended or stay angry. The idea of our own “righteous anger” is a myth.
In the Unoffendable study you will learn these ideas of immeasurable value:
• A concrete, practical way to live life with less stress
• How to adjust your expectations to fit human nature
• Replace perpetual anger with refreshing humility and gratitude
This study seeks to lift religious burdens allowing us to experience the joy of gratitude, perhaps for the first time, every day of our lives.
Join Judy Tucker and Terri Beavers for an in-depth study and discussion of Brant Hansen’s book Unoffendable Thursdays at Rhema Christian Center from 6 to 7:30 p.m. beginning Mar. 30. For more information and to register please visit therhemalife.com or call the church office at 304-645-6999.
