Evening Seminar - Human Sexuality from God's Perspective


Thursday Evening Seminar- “Sexuality: God’s Perspective.”  March 13, 7:00 to 8:00 pm at the Anglican Church of the Holy Trinity, 160 Merovan Drive, North Augusta (on the right 0.5 miles north of I-20 Exit 5).  Psalm 139 says tells us we are “fearfully and wonderfully made.”  Human sexuality is a beautiful part of a beautiful creation. How to keep a healthy perspective on such a fearful and wonderful gift is a struggle for us all, most particularly for our young folk who are bombarded with sexual imagery and the modern secular perspective on sexuality.  We will look at this from God’ perspective.  More info: call 803-342-0075

Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper

Anglican Church of the Holy Trinity, North Augusta to raise funds for CMONA
with a Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper Celebration

Many churches celebrate an annual event known as “Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper.”  At the Anglican Church of the Holy Trinity this year, Shrove Tuesday (March 4, 5:30-7:30) is going to be the venue for raising funds for Community Ministries of North Augusta (CMONA).  CMONA is supported by many of the churches in the North Augusta area and provides for help with emergency needs in the community.

Shrove Tuesday is a centuries old tradition. The name Shrove has its root in an old English word meaning to confess.”   Shrove Tuesday has been a time to confess sins and prepare for the penitential Season of Lent.  It also has been a traditional time to use up food items such as fats, eggs and milk that would be given up as part of a Lenten fast.  The tradition of eating pancakes on Shrove Tuesday came about as a way to use up these food items.  In the French culture, the consumption of all fats on this day became known as "Fat Tuesday" or Mardi Gras.

Holy Trinity is located at 160 Merovan Drive, North Augusta (on the right 0.6 mi north of I-20 Exit 5)
