To enter, simply fill out a card stating your name with the kind of chili you will make. Then bring your chili in a crock pot on November 4. Cards are in fellowship hall and must be completed by October 28. Come taste the various chili entries and vote for your favorite one. The cost is a good will offering which will be donated to the pantry.

ALTERNATIVE GIFT MARKET is on Saturday, November 10, from 11:00 to 4:00, at University Congregational Church.  The Market is a unique opportunity to “buy” a gift in honor of a family member/friend. At the same time, your gift is helping to alleviate poverty, hunger, and injustice around the world. Over 30 projects will be represented and, no doubt, one of them will earn your support. Our UCC Women’s Guild will be selling breakfast, lunch, and homemade baked goods. All proceeds benefit the Alternative Gift Market. So come hungry, shop the market, and stay for breakfast and lunch.
