The day before Ash Wednesday is Shrove Tuesday, sometimes called “Fat Tuesday”, or Mardi Gras. Centuries ago, Christians often stuffed themselves with food before beginning 40 days of fasting for Lent. In those days, many Christians used up all the food containing fat, including dairy products. Because so many foods, including pancakes, used those fat products, many churches had huge feasts.
Our Youth Group will host a Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper as a fundraiser for their upcoming Mission Trips. Plan to come out and support our youth as you enjoy a pancake supper on Shrove Tuesday, February 28 from 6:00pm until 7:00pm in the Fellowship Hall.
There is no charge for this meal, but donations will be accepted.
