Chili Cook Off This Sunday!
We are kicking off the fall with a chili cookoff! (Don't fret - the temperature will be in the 70's on Sunday... which will seem like cool, chili-eating weather compared to what we've had.)
Worship is at 11:00 and then the chili cookoff begins! So get that favorite recipe going!
We will have three categories: Grand Champion, Spiciest While Still Being Edible, and People's Choice.
Prizes will be $20 gift certificates to local business and snazzy certificates that you'll be desperate to frame.
Here's how to be a part of the fun... eaters only, skip to step two:
1. Make your chili and have it in a crock pot to be plugged in the fellowship hall before worship. Fill out a quick little card and tape it to your crock pot (info will include your name, how spicy your chili is, etc.)
2. Eat chili during fellowhip time. We will also have yummy food for those who don't eat chili.
3. Vote for your favorite chili for the People's Choice Award.
4. Winners will be announced before 1:00 (we hope).
If you have any questions, comments, etc., contact Pastor Seth.

*Our first meeting is this evening (Tuesday the 4th) at 7:00pm in the Fellowship Hall! Future workshop dates will be scheduled tonight.*
One of the consistent questions I, Pastor Seth, have been asked over the course of my ministry is, “How do I pray?” That is a broad question and I often find with a little exploring in conversation that this question comes from a place of feeling inadequate and feeling like we don’t know how to pray because we compare ourselves to others or believe in some intriguing myths about prayer.
If you would like a stronger, more fruitful prayer life, no matter how you feel about your prayer life right now, this workshop is for you.
I will be leading a four-session workshop this spring addressing some major topics in prayer, including:
· The secrets to praying out loud
· Models for prayer that you can use everyday in every situation
· How to use Scripture in your prayers
· How to setup fruitful prayer times
· Praying without words
