Methodist Pastors Cook Chili @ Tinney Chapel
to Eradicate Malaria from the face of the earth
Six pastors cooked chili for the big Cookoff at Tinney Chapel on Saturday, Feb. 26, where the public was invited to taste all the offerings and donate money to their favorites, in a blind, numbered event so that no one knew which pastor's chili they were voting for.
All proceeds were earmarked for the United Methodist worldwide campaign, "Imagine No Malaria," intended to eradicate this dreaded disease from the face of the earth:
At today's event at Tinney Chapel UMC, the total contributions came to $1,042.00 and change.
Winners in the Cookoff were, first place, Rev. Susan Gross, Tinney Chapel; second place, Rev. Henry Suche, Pickton UMC, and third place, Rev. Reid Fade, FUMC Winnsboro.
Other pastors in the competition: Rev. De'Vaugh Moton, Hynson Chapel CME of Winnsboro, Rev. Pete Adrian of FUMC Mt. Vernon and Rev. Tim Marks of the North Texas Conference's East District.
A "house chili" was prepared by Tinney Chapel member Alicia Moore and a "house stew" was prepared by Tinney Chapel member Carolyn Newton. Desserts and iced tea were provided by the ladies of Tinney Chapel.
Entertainment was provided by the nationally famous gospel group, The Southern Plainsmen.
