Chili Cook-Off & Cake Auction – January 28
If you would like to know how your chili stacks up to others, or if you love our youth and want to help them raise money for camp, we have an event for you. We are going to have a Chili Cook-Off and Cake Auction on January 28 after the morning service to help raise funds for youth camp. We are going to charge $20 to enter the cook-off and $5 to eat. We will have a celebrity panel to judge the best chili. A sign-up sheet to enter the cook-off or to bring cakes will be available on the youth table in the atrium.

Souper Bowl Time
The Super Bowl will be played on February 4 this year so now is the time to plan your class Super Bowl fellowship. Please notify the office about any Super Bowl events so we can list them in the bulletin. It is also the time when we collect canned soup to donate to the Olive Branch Food Pantry. There are many needy families in the DeSoto and Marshall Counties and this is an inexpensive way that each of us can help our neighbors in need. There is a table set up near the offices to place your cans of soup.
