Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper

Tuesday, Feb. 13

Gathering Place


The UMM invite you to a Shrove Tuesday Pancake supper on Tuesday, February 13 from 4-7pm. 


Shrove Tuesday is the day before the start of Lent on Ash Wednesday. Lent, the 40 days leading up to Easter, is a time of abstinence, of giving things up. Shrove Tuesday began as a last chance to indulge and for people to use up many of the items in their cupboards they gave up during Lent. 


All are welcome, and we encourage you to invite your friends and neighbors.

 Contact James Davis (540-292-9340) if you have any questions.

Monday Night Bible Study

Resumes Feb. 19 @ 7pm


Monday night zoom study will resume on Monday, 19th for the Lenten season. Our study will be focused around "A Different Kind of Fast" by Christine Valters Paintner. Over the course of Lent we will be invited to fast from certain things and embrace others. The first half of the book is the introduction and describes what motivated her to create this practice and why. You can read that or not, depending on how much reading you want to do. The daily practices start on Ash Wednesday, which is February 14, which is what will direct our study. For more information contact Pastor Amy.
