St. Lydias is a Dinner Church. We gather every Sunday evening to cook and share a sacred meal, just as the first followers of Jesus did. We eat, explore scripture, offer prayers, and sing together. St. Lydia's is an experiment in what the Church might be when the meal we share is at the center of our common life. We're building this togethercome and join us!
