Despite the shock and sadness this week, after some consideration, we believe it is best to go ahead with this gathering — using it as a chance to be together. We are going to make it a by-donation event to make it easier for more people to attend and to focus on being together in this time of sorrow.
In some ways, this makes the “cook-off” aspect even more fortuitous — although hosted by the church, the meal is really being made by the community, for the community.
Thank you for your support of this event. While the tone may not be as lighthearted and silly as we’d originally hoped, we do aspire to make it a meaningful celebration of community, love and connection — which will hopefully bring joy to many as well.
Food will be served from 5 to 7PM and we have 11 local restaurants donating chicken pies for your consideration! We hope to see you there.
