ROAD TRIP to SAINT LUKE’S United Methodist – Dubuque

On Valentine’s Day 2020, Pastor Marilyn drove a van of Parish of Hills UMC members to Saint Lukes United Methodists Church in Dubuque.  Each of the three churches – First, Linden, and Bethel – were represented with participants.  A tour, concert, and bell tower climb were included followed by lunch at Caroline’s. It was a cold day, but a heart warming experience.
