We have two families in our Manakin family that are dealing with this disease. To show our love and support to these families, red silicone bands were blessed and distributed on Sunday, April 26. We encourage each person to wear these and let it be a reminder to pray for all families that are impacted by ALS.
Then on Sunday, May 31 after the 10:00 a.m. service and confirmation, we will be having a Chili Cook-Off in Denny Hall to benefit our families. Chili tastings will be set up around the room. Vote for the best one with your donations (cash, coins, check). The winner will receive a prize. All donations will be split and will go to each family. Both families will be present that day.
Now get ready! Individuals or teams can participate! Cook your favorite recipe – enough for everyone to taste and vote – red chili, white chicken chili, vegetarian chili. You decide. Sign up to bring a chili on the bulletin board in Denny Hall. Provided that day for all: tasting cups and spoons, salsa and chips, cornbread, plus a big cake to celebrate confirmation.
If you are interested in helping with this event and/or need an ALS bracelet, please contact the church office.
