The lunches are open to the public and are served at 11:45 a.m. every Thursday, during Lent, at the First United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall, 819 Main St., Osage. The cost is $6 and all proceeds go to missions.

Next Thursday, Feb. 15, Pastor Jim Stern, of the Osage Alliance Church, will speak on "Let the Little Children Come to Me” from the text - Mark 10:13-16. The menu is Baked Potato Bar.
