Mark your calendars for the return of our annual Chili Cook-Off & Pie/Cake Auction, happening after church on Sunday, October 16th in the Family Life Center!
Right after our worship service, we'll head over to the FLC to enjoy lunch, taste chilis, and bid on homemade pies & cakes baked by members of our church community, all with the goal to raise money for our Kids & Teens Camp Scholarship Fund!

It's the most fun — and delicious — fundraiser of the year!
More details to come, but if you'd like to sign-up now to enter a chili into the cook-off, or a pie/cake into the auction (or, both!), then click the button below to fill out our brief Chili & Pie Entry Form:
