Shrove Tuesday is the more theological title for Mardi Gras which means Fat Tuesday.

Shrove however is neither Latin nor Greek for fat. Shrove is the past tense of the verb shrive which refers to the process of confession and absolution.

Fat Tuesday refers to the tradition of consuming all meat products, even the fat, before the beginning of the lent. So the tradition of a pan bread or cake to absorb the last of the fat developed.

Our Shrove Tuesday Pancakes are served with sausage and apple sauce, but most importantly with great fellowship as we have a chance to sit and visit with people who attend a worship service other than the one we usually attend.

Please join us February 21 for great food and great friends and a fun party supper!
