Activities for Fat Tuesday and Ash Wednesday


February 16, 2023

DAYTON—Some call it Mardis Gras, some Fat Tuesday, but at First United Methodist Church, it’s all about pancakes. The church will host a Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper on Tuesday, February 21, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.

All are welcome to enjoy pancakes with toppings, sausage, and some surprises.

Wednesday, February 22, is the beginning of Lent, and the First United Methodist Church invites the public to a simple meal for Ash Wednesday. The meal of soup, bread, and cookies will be offered from noon to 1:00 p.m. at the church in Dayton.

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent and is observed by placing ashes on the forehead as a sign of repentance and commitment to Jesus Christ. Ashes will be available to drop-in visitors from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. The church is located at 110 S. Third Street, Dayton.

For more information, contact Rev. Linda Weistaner at 509-382-4671 or
