Shrove Tuesday and Ash Wednesday

Join us for...

...Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper
Tuesday, Feb. 9 5:30 - 7:00pm
 as we enjoy sugar and fat before the fasting of Lent begins!
If you didn't know...Bethany has a unique pancake tradition.  In addition to traditional pancakes, as pictured above, Bethany also serves (savory) buckwheat pancakes with sausage gravy - a tradition from the time when the Winebargers used to bring fresh-milled buckwheat flour from their mill. 

***Update: It's snowing!  We are still planning to eat pancakes for those who are able to come.  But use your discretion!  Pancakes aren't worth your safety!

Then join us again for the beginning of Lent for

 This service sets the tone for the season of Lent, as we receive the ashes from Palm Sunday's palm branches in the form of a cross on our foreheads, reminding us of our mortality, our fickleness, and our need for the Savior.
