Chili Cookoff
in January!

Chili cookoff image

Whether you like to "bring the heat" or just enjoy the fellowship, be sure to join us for this favorite annual event...

Our inaugural Chili Cookoff in 2017 quickly became one of Prestoncrest's most anticipated annual events. It is held every year in January* to kick off the new year with a little friendly competition, perfectly blended with some good old-fashioned "church potluck style" fellowship. It is held on the Sunday night before MLK day so all ages can enjoy lots of fun and fellowship ('s not a "school night" for the kids!)

*except for unavoidable COVID postponements 2020, 21, & 22

Be sure to join us for lots of food, fellowship, and fun... & prizes for the winners, of course!

All varieties welcome: traditional, meat, exotic (ex: venison), vegetarian, beans (or no beans!)... creativity is encouraged.

Each year we begin signups in late December, so if you plan to bring chili, let us know so we can accommodate plugs and table space for everyone's crockpots.

Volunteers are always needed to help with setup or cleanup, bringing dessert, or bringing cornbread.

Schedule of Events:

6:00 pm ~ Evening service

6:30 ish to 7:30pm ~ Eating, judging & fellowship

7:00 pm ~ Announce winners & prizes

Qs? Contact the church office @ or 972.233.2392

About 300 were in attendance again on Sunday night, January 14, 2024 in the Fellowship Hall. Temperatures were below freezing outside, but the HEAT was ON in the Fellowship Hall with some great chili competition! A total of 14 contestants entered their chili for judging. A new lineup of winners walked away with prizes in 2024: Don & Tianay Carroll won 1st place, Brian Patterson took 2nd place, and PCYG 11th grader Gideon Galdiano won 3rd place AND the "People's Choice" award! Big thanks to all our volunteers, chili makers, cornbread and dessert donations, and congrats to all the winners!
