March 5 from 5:00 to 7:00 pm in Mission Hall

For those of you unfamiliar with it, Shrove Tuesday (also known as Fat Tuesday or by its French name Mardi Gras) is celebrated on the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday. According to historicuk. com, “Pancake Day or Shrove Tuesday, is the tradi􀆟onal feast day before the start of Lent on
Ash Wednesday. Lent, the 40 days leading up to Easter, was traditionally a time of fasting and on Shrove Tuesday, Anglo‐Saxon Christians went to confession and were “shriven” (absolved from their sins). Shrove Tuesday was the last opportunity to use up eggs and fats before embarking on
the Lenten fast and pancakes are the perfect way of using up these ingredients.”

Honoring that tradion and being good Presbyterians who will use any excuse to eat, we will hold our annual Pancake Supper on March 5th from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 pm in Mission Hall. The menu includes pancakes ‐ plain buttermilk or blueberry, bacon, strawberries, coffee, milk, and orange juice. All are welcome to bring your friends and come enjoy some good food and fellowship.

A free-will offering will be welcome at the door to help defray the cost of the food.

Hope to see you there!
