AFTER 40-PLUS hours toiling away at the office every week, spending the weekend in the kitchen is not my idea of how to unwind. Fortunately, two local churches are offering tasty solutions.

St. John's Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of American will hold its annual soup and baked potato sale from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday in the church social hall. It always features an assortment of homemade soups, baked potatoes with toppings, and desserts.

The cost of a bowl of soup with bread is $1.50, and a baked potato with toppings can range from $1 to $2. A carryout quart of soup may be purchased for $3.50.

St. John Lutheran is at 226 Washburn Ave. in Brooklyn. Information: 410-355-7295.

On March 5, St. Athanasius Roman Catholic Church will sponsor its second oyster, turkey and ham dinner, which will be served family-style in the social hall. Two seatings are planned -- from 11: 30 a.m. to 2: 30 p.m. and from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Tickets are $12 in advance for adults and children ages 13 and older, and $5 for children ages 6 to 12. Prices at the door will be a dollar more, but those ages 5 and younger are admitted free. Carryout dinners will be available for $12.

St. Athanasius is at Church and Prudence streets in Curtis Bay.

Tickets or information: 410-360-2833, 410-789-3013 or 410-355-5740.

Brooklyn Park basket bingo

The public can have a good time, win prizes and support a local school in a Longaberger basket bingo sponsored by Friends of the Brooklyn Park Elementary School.

The bingo will be held March 5 at Bingo World, at 10th Avenue and Belle Grove Road. Doors will open at 11 a.m., and games will begin at 12: 15 p.m. Tickets are $12 in advance, $15 at the door. There will be 20 games and door prizes.

Northern District meeting

A representative from the U.S. Marshals Service will speak at Wednesday's meeting of the Northern District Police Community Relations Council, giving an overview of the office's duties and everyday activities.

North County residents interested in reducing crime and supporting the county police are invited to attend.

The meeting will be held at 7: 30 p.m. at the Northern District station on Hammonds Lane. Information: 410-789-3683.

Light Night ministry

A new session of Light Night, the Wednesday evening children's ministry of Townsend Avenue Baptist Church, will begin at 7 p.m. March 1.

The theme will be "The Fruit of the Spirit." Children in first through seventh grades are welcome to attend and participate in clubs such as Bible Memory, Fun with Music, Story Time, Sports, Science and Nature, Homemaking and Crafts.
