The Lenten Season begins next month, and the Taylorville Ministerial Association has 6 weeks of services lined up on Wednesday's During the lunch hour. The services will all have food provided to those who attend, and donations are welcome as all proceeds will go to TMA's Financial Assistance Fund to help those less fortunate.
Bill Kerns, Pastor of Davis Memorial Christian Church and member of the Taylorville Ministerial Association said the 6 services will all have different speakers and will be at different locations. And while they all share the topic of forgiveness, it's a much more broad topic than one would think.
Kerns said the services are important fundraisers for TMA as the money will all go to their program to help those who need financial assistance with food, gas, or lodging.
Kerns appeared on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show.
