Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper

Hunt’s holds a Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper each year on the evening before Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent.  Members of the congregation gather together for pancakes and sausages and to share good fellowship, lively conversation, and a sing-along of favorite songs and hymns. 

Historically, Shrove Tuesday was a time for Christians to remove any trace of yeast or leaven from their homes to symbolize a “cleansing” in preparation for Lent, a time for introspection and reflection leading up to Christ’s passion, death, and resurrection.  Protestant churches have carried on that tradition with a pancake supper to figuratively “use up” food ingredients that contain yeast and to celebrate one last day before Lent begins.
