Pancake Supper Tuesday!!

Mmm…pancakes! Come join us for our annual Pancake Supper on Tuesday from 5-7pm. It will be at Mt. Tabor, in the fellowship hall (downstairs…and unfortunately, NOT handicapped accessible). There is no charge for the dinner, but a freewill offering will be accepted.

This will be the final day of what is called “Ordinary Time” in the Church calendar…the last day before the beginning of Lent and the preparation for the Easter and resurrection of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. One of the reasons we have a large meal on Tuesday night is because historically, people have fasted on the following day, known as Ash Wednesday. We will be observing Ash Wednesday with a service and imposition of ashes at 7pm at Deer Creek UMC. Join us to learn about this historical practice and to set the tone for the next 40 days (excluding Sundays).

Blessings to you! We hope to see you at the Pancake Supper and/or Ash Wednesday services. Please let us know if we can do anything to help you journey closer to God.
