Today is Shrove Tuesday but unlike other churches and organizations Redeemer Lutheran Church does not have a Pancake supper on Shrove Tuesday. We begin Lent with a Pancake Supper on Ash Wednesday. Pancake Supper at 5:00 p.m. and then Ash Wednesday Service at 7:00 p.m.
The congregation place a advertisement in the Monday "What's On" Section of the PA Herald. Our insert for this week reads Ash Wednesday pancake supper Feb. 25, 5-6:30 p.m. at Redeemer Lutheran Church... Each Wednesday during Lent the Ladies provide a soup and bun supper before the service.
What really made me chuckle was the insert for the following weeks of Lent.
I believe this could be included into the Church bloopers that we so often read in those various emails that circulate.
