A Blaze of Lenten praise

Members of Blaze pause for a photo following their performance at the Hampshire Colony Congregational Church’s Lenten Meditation and Luncheon, sponsored by the church’s Women’s Fellowship. Pictured are Mary McCauley (seated), Jay Suarez (standing, from left), Evan Suarez, Clare Suarez, Tori Suarez and Justus Bystry.

Each week, the church hosts another musical performance/luncheon during the Lenten season. The music begins at 12:10 p.m., followed by a simple luncheon. Wendell Nelson performed Feb. 27, and upcoming performers include Bill and Dorothy Nelson, March 6; Kris Gould, March 13; Ron McCutchan, March 20; and the Methodist Church Handbell Ensemble on March 27. The church accepts a freewill offering.
