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 everyone can stick around and enjoy lots of fellowship (...it's not a "school night" for the kids!)
*except for unavoidable COVID postponements in 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, WITH beans, WITHOUT beans...
creativity is encouraged.
Cornbread, Fritos, onions, cheese, and drinks are always provided. 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.
