Lenten Preaching Mission and Lenten Luncheon 2018
Feb 16 – Mar 30 all-day

As we enter another Easter season, Grace Episcopal Church is embarking on its

40th annual Lenten Luncheon Program. This has been a wonderful opportunity for many different people and churches to share a meal and fellowship during the Easter season. The money raised at the luncheon has gone to community

outreach programs such as Arron McNeil House, Sanctuary House, and Grace

Church Kindergarten and many others in our community. The cost of the meal is $8.00 per person.

These luncheons take place following a 12 PM service on every Friday during the observance of Lent. Please see below for dates, hosts, and speakers. We look forward to seeing you at Grace Episcopal Church for the Lenten Luncheon Program 2018.

Meet Aunt Jemima, the Pancake Queen @ Hopkinsville-Christian County Public Library
Mar 3 @ 9:00 am – 11:00 am
Meet Aunt Jemima, the Pancake Queen @ Hopkinsville-Christian County Public Library  | Hopkinsville | Kentucky | United States

Debra Faulk, a Chautauqua presenter from the Kentucky Humanities Council will present a program, entitled, “Being Aunt Jemima, the Pancake Queen,” on Saturday, March 3rd. FREE EVENT. Come at 9am for social time/refreshment served. Program begins at 9:30am.

Nancy Green became one of the first prosperous African American women in the U.S. Green was born enslaved in Montgomery County, Kentucky, in 1834. While in Kentucky she worked for the Walker family and moved with them to Chicago just after the Great Fire, in 1872. Eight years later, Nancy Green became “Aunt Jemima.” Businessman R.T. Davis had purchased a pre-mixed, self-rising recipe for pancakes and wanted an “Aunt Jemima,” a character from minstrel shows which were popular at the time, to be the face of his pancakes. “Aunt Jemima” would be a friendly, animated, African American cook who served a wealthy white family. Playing the role of “Aunt Jemima” gave Green financial independence few African Americans and few women experienced at the time. She used her wealth as a means to empower her community. She was particularly active in her church, leading missionary trips, investing in anti-poverty programs for African Americans, and advocating for equal rights.
