Many in Marysville’s Christian community look forward to observing Lent through fellowship each Wednesday at noon.

Nearly 90 people spent the March 4 lunch hour sharing a meal at United Methodist Church as they heard Presbyterian minister Marilyn Sweet speak. Those attending also sang songs of praise and listened to brief prayers.
