UPCOMING EVENTS

Port-a-Pit Chicken BBQ

 Port-A-Pit is coming up on Friday, November 15 from Noon until 7:00 (or until we sell out) Tickets are $10.00 per plate and include half a chicken, beans, slaw and roll. Desserts are available for a donation.  All of the proceeds will go to support the Youth Ministry. This fund raiser is very important as it allows the ministry to do more for less. 


How can you help? If you haven't already done so, purchase a ticket and invite a friend to come with you. We need help the morning of November 15 from 8:45 until 2:00 and from 2:00 until 7:00. We are in need of delivery drivers, clean up help, and DESSERTS! Sign up or contact Mike if you can help.
