BUT....


February 23 - After Church 
We're kicking off Lent with a Soiree Francais @ Sophia and Ms. Debbie's House after church! (you can ride home from church with Ms. Debbie - but parents need to pick up @4 pm at the Carlton's) * 4545 Clipper Bay Rd. - Duluth, GA 30096

Lunch Menu
Crepes filled with something french
Nutella and Crepes
Maybe Croque Monsieurs
More french chocolate stuff for dessert

* Our church-wide sermon series during Lent is based off the story of Victor Hugo's Les Miserables, and we're getting a head start!
