Okay, guys, COURT IS IN SESSION! Mens basketball in the gym Saturday, February 17 at 6:30 a.m.! All are welcome; first timers, come on down!

Whats in it for you? This: 
  • shooting hoops helps burn around 300 calories an hour.  
  • playing a half court game brings it to about 558 an hour. 
  • stepping up to a full court game will burn around 747 calories an hour.

Heres more encouragement:
  • your sweat is your fat crying.
  • some want it to happen, some wish it would happen, others make it happen.
  • it doesn’t take athletic ability to hustle.
  • out of yourself and into the TEAM.
  • the more we sweat the luckier we get.

Then get a smoothie or a donut on the way home! Its all in how you balance things, you know?

Comment on Facebook

And those pancakes were delish,😋 not to mention the bacon, sausage and fresh fruits!!

It’s Shrove Tuesday Pancake Dinner time! You don’t have to be signed up! Come and join us in the Multipurpose Room from 6 to 7:30 p.m.  tonight!  The cakes are grillin’ and it’s time for you to get drivin’!
Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper is Tonight!

Join us for a scrumptious pancake supper (including sausage, bacon, and fruit) beginning at 6 p.m. in the Multipurpose Room. Pancakes will be flipped until about 7:30 p.m. 

Why pancakes? Pancakes are associated with the day preceding Lent because they were a way to use up rich foods such as eggs, milk, and sugar, before the fasting season of the 40 days of Lent. This a wonderful fellowship opportunity and a chance to get to know other church members over a shared meal. 

If you can help set up or clean up, let us know! More pancake flippers needed, too. Please email Cindy in the Church Office, cdrennan@stjohns-es.org.
