Shrove Tuesday and Ash Wednesday

Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper tonight at 5:30 pm.
 Fat Tuesday is known by many Christians as Shrove Tuesday and it is a very common practice for churches to have Shrove Tuesday pancake dinners-using up the sugar in the church’s kitchen! This year we will again prepare and serve a Pancake Supper that will include sausage, juice, milk and coffee. A donation of $5 is asked and will go to our Week of Compassion offering. Join us tonight at 5:30pm!
 
 
Ash Wednesday Service     
 Tomorrow, March 1 at 6:30 pm
Ash Wednesday is the first day of Lent. It takes its name from the ceremonial imposition of ashes on the foreheads of worshipers as a sign of human sin and mortality. This ancient tradition, going back at least to the tenth century, communicates the human condition before God by solemn word and sign. The ashes are made from burning the branches carried the previous Palm SundayPlease join us at 6:30 on March 1.
