FISH, FISH, AND MORE FISH

MARK YOUR CALENDARS FOR MLUMC’S LENTEN FISH FRIES

Friday, February 16th

Friday, March 8th

Friday, March 29th

All Fish Fries will run from 4:00-7:00pm

The Missions and Outreach Committee will once again be hosting Community Fish Fries during Lent.  This year there will be 3 for the first time ever (prior years had 2). These Fish Fries will take place on Friday, February 16th (1st Friday of Lent), Friday, March 8th (midway through Lent), and Friday, March 29th (Good Friday). Eat-in as well as take-out will be offered. There will also be limited delivery to shut-ins and Food Pantry clients.   

The tradition of Lenten Fish Fries at our Church started in 2016. Covid-19 limited us for several years to only having one Fish Fry on Good Friday, but we were back with 2 in 2023 and will do 3 in 2024.

The menu for the February 16th and March 8th Fish Fries will include fried and baked fish as well as chicken nuggets (for non-fish eaters), French fries, hush puppies, macaroni ‘n cheese, Cole slaw, buns, fruit, and desserts. The March 29th (Good Friday) Fish Fry will likely include a few additional items as well as Communion elements administered by Pastor Tom.

As is our practice, there will be no charge for the Fish Fries, although donations will be accepted. To paraphrase Pastor Tom, those able to donate will help ensure that those unable to do so can still eat.

These Fish Fries have proven to be very popular, not only for our Church members but also neighbors in our surrounding communities. They are a great way for us to provide hospitality and all to share food, fun, and fellowship.

You do not need to order ahead for either eat-in or take-out!

Please mark these dates on your calendar and plan to attend.  And, if you would like further information on these Fish Fries or wish to help in some manner with them, please contact Rob Spicher, Missions and Outreach Committee Chair, at 412-720-4589 or robert.spicher@pnc.com.
