Fall Fellowship Event and Chili Cook-off – Just a reminder that we have a sign-up sheet in the Narthex for chili and a variety of other food items to contribute to the Fall Fellowship event on Oct 1st after the 11:00 am service. We hope to have a variety of chili for this event, so please consider signing up to bring your favorite recipe! If we do not have enough signed up to put on a good cook-off, we will change plans and have a fall food themed event! Either way, it will be a great time of fellowship- stay tuned for more info.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact Holly Tomlin or John Ball. Everythingbutthegarage.com
