Sunday, March 3 at Noon the Annual Chili Cook-off & Pie Bake-off Challenge is slated to begin at Faith Baptist Church.
Anyone can participate by preparing their own chili recipe and or homemade pie and having it at the Gym to be sampled by 10 AM. All chili participants need to bring a crock pot filled with their chili, already warm for serving. Everybody has to have a name for their chili when they bring it. All pie participants need to bring your two pies uncut – one for tasting and one for the pie auction. Please include ingredients of the chili and pie but it can’t have the participants name on it. There is a $5 entry fee per entry.
The gym will be decorated for the event. Tables will be set up for all entries to display their chili and/or pie. Decorations are encouraged. All tableware, drinks, and condiments will be provided.
There is no cost to eat. All are invited. However, everyone will be given the opportunity to vote on the best tasting chili and pie by donating money to their favorite. The chili and the pie with the most money collected will be awarded the top prize and the person who brought each entry will have their name engraved on the trophy.
All proceeds will go to the Faith Baptist Church Building Fund. This will be our initial fundraising effort toward expansion of our facility. The pastors and deacons will have architectural renderings of a proposed plan for a new educational wing and remodeling of our current classrooms and church lobby.
