The Kittanning Ministerial Association (KMA) will begin their series of Lenten community worship services tonight at 7PM at Family-Life Church.
The services are held each Tuesday night at different church in the community with a different guest speaker from another church of the Ministerium.
The Reverend Walter Marr from Elderton will be the guest speaker.
