First Annual Chili Cook-off & Pumpkin Painting Contest

Join us as we start a new tradition with our first annual Chili Cook-Off on October 30th 2021!! We are excited to bring new fun to our annual Harvest Festival. Along with the chili cook-off we will be offering a pumpkin painting contest for kids! Come and enjoy a great time of friendship and fun as we celebrate the Fall season. On top of the cook-off and pumpkin painting we will have a silent dessert/basket auction going on that you are more than welcome to join in on. We are excited to be starting a new tradition and hope to see you there to experience the fun!

This year proceeds will go to help with improvements in the church, including updating our existing water heaters!
If you are interested in participating the Chili Cook-Off  click the link below to sign up. You can sign up until October 23rd.

The only rules of the competition are that you must indicate whether or not your chili is spicy or not, and have a printed list of ingredients in the chili. If you have a secret family recipe that you don't wish to share the ingredients for we ask that you at least list the possible allergens that might be in the chili (ie, milk, soy, pork, nuts...).

Sign-up to be part of the chili-cook has closed.

The winners will be announced beginning around 7:30.
