The West End UMC Offices, Preschool and building will be closed tomorrow, Tuesday, February 17, due to the inclement weather conditions.
As a result, both the Pancake Supper and Jazz Mass are CANCELLED!
We regret having to make this decision, but feel everyone's safety is more important.
Please stay warm and safe, and if you should have a pastoral emergency, call 615.321.8500 and you will be directed on how to page the pastor on call.
Enjoy a unique worship opportunity, preceded by the fun of a pancake supper, complete with beads, masks and other Mardi Gras trimmings. Make plans to attend a Mardi Gras style Jazz Mass on Shrove Tuesday, February 17 in the Sanctuary at 6:30 p.m. This festive celebration of Holy Communion is framed in a jazz setting, with a jazz band, a Mardi Gras style processional, hymns, and vocal interpretations of the traditional text. Join us in this final celebration for Christians before the Lenten season begins the next day. Childcare will be provided for children through age 4 for this service.
In conjunction with the Jazz Mass, the Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper will precede the celebration in McWhirter Hall at 5 p.m. Pancake specialists from Blackman United Methodist Church will have the grills hot and will be serving gourmet pancakes and sausage. Advance ticket sales are encouraged as a large crowd is expected. Click here to get your tickets online, or tickets will also be sold on February 8 and 15 in Reed Hall. There will also be tickets available at the door on Shrove Tuesday. Tickets prices are $7 for adults and $4 for children.
