Pax Cake/Ash Wednesday
Service and Pancake Supper

Wednesday, February 18 at 6:30pm

Join us for a night of fellowship, food, and a Pax (peace) Cake/Ash Wednesday service. To RSVP call the church office (910-455-2434) by Friday, February 13. Let us know how many will attend.

Shrove Tuesday (as in "to shrive," to absolve or do penance) marks the last hurrah before the austerity of Lent begins. It's the same concept as the festivals of Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday) or Carnival (farewell to the flesh, carne). In some European countries, it is called Pancake Day as the pantry gets cleaned out of extravagant, fatty, cake-like foods that would be a temptation during Lent in favor of foods that were designated for a journey, such as unleavened bread.
 

The season of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, February 18. During the season of Lent we prepare our hearts and minds to move through the last weeks of Jesus' ministry and to the glorious Easter celebration.
