Shrove Tuesday Celebration
Tuesday, February 25, 2020, 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM
Shrove Tuesday, Fat Tuesday, Mardi Gras, Carnivale, whatever you choose to call it, is an opportunity for one last celebration before Lent begins. Shrove Tuesday has become a day of feasting in preparation for the fasting that is to occur during Lent. The feasting aspect of Shrove Tuesday originated due to the need to get rid of the foods/ingredients that are restricted during the Lenten fasting, such as sugar, leavened flour, eggs, etc. The need to use up these ingredients has resulted in Shrove Tuesday also becoming known as Pancake Tuesday, or, more simply, Pancake Day.
The Shrove Tuesday celebration at FUMC consists of a fun evening of fellowship, including games and activities for the kids, and a Mardi Gras menu of pancakes, a King Cake, and more.
We hope you’ll join us as we celebrate before we observe this holy time!
Cost: 4 per person; $15 family max.
