Fat Tuesday Celebration

Here at Evergreen Church we are committed to passionately following, sharing, and serving Christ through the power of the Gospel. One of the many ways we are committed to doing so is by loving our local neighbors well. Over the past months, we have aimed to know our neighbors better by hosting them within our own homes.

As we enter into the Lenten season, we encourage you to join us again in hosting your neighbors. We challenge you to invite a few of your neighbors or coworkers over for a “Fat Tuesday” meal on the evening of Tuesday, February 13thIn order to help your meal become a roaring success, we’ve included Cajun recipes to use with your Evergreen Church casserole dish (see below). If you do not currently have an Evergreen casserole dish, please stop by the Evergreen Church office, and we will be happy to provide you with one.

For many, Fat Tuesday is a kick-off of the Lenten season. This season is the 40 days leading up to Easter Sunday and is one that allows us the opportunity to prayerfully prepare our hearts to remember the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. One of the many ways we can prayerfully prepare our hearts is by fasting, or abstaining from an indulgence for the entirety of the 40-day season. 

Fat Tuesday, however, is another story. With Fat Tuesday in mind, we invite you to host your neighbors for an indulgent evening of fun, fellowship, and food. We are so excited to partner with you and your family as we continue to follow, share, and serve Christ as Evergreen Church in 2018!
