First Christian Church celebrates Fat Sunday
A few days before Fat Tuesday, First Christian Church is hosting Fat Sunday.
The event is aimed to prepare members for the end of the season of Epiphany and the beginning of the Lenten and Easter season. It will include a special worship service with a jazz combo churning out traditional hymns.
Fat Sunday, or Transfiguration Sunday, is the last Sunday before Lent begins.
The Rev. Steve Didby said a carnival with a gumbo lunch and king's cake will follow the worship at 2105 N. Ben Jordan St. The event begins at 10:50 a.m. in the fellowship hall.
The public is welcome to attend. For more information, call 361-575-2971.
