Feast and Fast at First Church? (RSVP)
February 28 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Why “Feast and Fast at First Church?” on Tuesday, February 28, 6:30 – 8 pm? (Downstairs in the Daniels Center)
Well, it IS “Mardi Gras” or ‘Fat Tuesday’. In earlier times, people used Lent as a time of fasting and repentance. Since they didn’t want to be tempted by sweets, meat and other distractions in the house, they cleaned out their cabinets. They used up all the sugar and yeast in sweet breads before the Lent season started, and fixed meals with all the meat available.
It was a great or “fat” feast! So we are going to have our own version to help us to move into Lent. We will feast, party with Mardi Gras beads and music, make our own masks, and end with a devotional time. Food for the evening will feature Peter Gurciullo’s famous macaroni and cheese, plus waffles and toppings including strawberries, whipped cream, syrup, etc., and sausages. There is no charge but we would like to be prepared for everyone who will join us. Also, if you have a waffle iron to loan us for the evening, let us know that too. All ages are invited![contact-form-7 404 "Not Found"]
