the pancake breakfast

The United Methodist Men Community Pancake Breakfast serves pancakes, scrambled eggs, ham, sausage, grits, fruit, and beverages on the first Saturday of every month, except for July & August. This is a big, longstanding community event that draws people from near and far. All are welcome!

Serving hours are 8:00-10:30 am, in Heavener Hall

Instead of charging a fixed price, families are asked to make a generous goodwill donation. 

(As a guide, the suggested amount is $8 for adults and $2 for children under 12, or $20 for a family of 4) 

Proceeds are donated each month to different charitable organizations in our region and around the world.

History of the pancake Breakfast

In 1970, Rev. Charles Kirkley "informed" then-UMM-President Jim Hobbs and his fellow officers that the Methodist Men should purchase a bus and finance it through the sale of pancakes and sausages.

The United Methodist Men agreed that a bus would be a good addition to support the growing St. Paul's ministry and programs. The men decided to begin raising funds by having pancake breakfasts on the first Saturday of every month except for July and August.  The first breakfast was held on October 3, 1970. The principal cooks were Jim Hobbs, Tom Huff and Jim Kessinger. Bill Sheaffer made the stainless steel griddle which is still used today. 

St. Paul's celebrated 40 years of pancakes in 2010. The pancake tradition continues today through the love and dedication of the United Methodist Men. They are proud to feed the community and support a variety of missions.
