Talent Show and Soup Cook-Off

Join us in celebrating the end of another successful Stewardship campaign with a Talent Show and Soup Cook-Off on November 4 from five to nine p.m. The children's talent show will begin at five in the sanctuary. Then we'll go to the Fellowship Hall for the Soup Cook -Off Dinner. Around 7pm we begin the adult talent show. This event, including dinner, is free and child care is available. Extra tickets can be purchased to vote for your favorite soup.
Many hands are needed to make this a successful event. Please volunteer by commenting below or contacting Sherry at 414-0384 or sherrytripodi@yahoo.com to:

  • perform your talent
  • have your child perform
  • prepare a large batch of soup for the cook-off
  • bring other food such as fruit, veggies, bread, or dessert
  • help set up
  • help in the kitchen during the event
  • help clean up
  • serve drinks

We hope to see you all there! ~The Stewardship Committee
