Mardi Gras/Shrove Tuesday Pancake Breakfast Sunday–
March 3rd, 9:00 AM
The roots of Mardi Gras are in the church. In the Middle Ages the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday families would use up sweet foods that they intended to stay away from during Lent. Shrove means "Fat Tuesday" Mardi Gras is French for Fat Tuesday. Thanks to the church, there is Mardi Gras, a great celebration. This church will be celebrating with a Pancake Breakfast, thank to had pancake flipper Larry Beck and with some support from the Board of Christian Education. In addition to pancakes there will be merry making and activities for the children including mask making, pancake races, and jester hat making.
