Oct. 29 6:00 pm 15th Anniversary Smokin’ Blues Chili Cookoff:  An extremely fun night, we’re going to taste over twenty pots of chili, and hear some live music from a very special group called THE MUSCLE ENERGY BAND from Des Moines University, made up of faculty doctors and students!  They are wild and wonderful, donating their services for our good cause.  No admission fee, just a Love Offering.


TO ENTER:  Bring a 1-2 gallon crock pot or pot to the Fellowship Hall kitchen no later than 4:30 pm the day of the contest.  Call Terri Holmgren at 778-7225 and leave a message.  Call Ben Allaway at 720-1038 if you have questions. We are also offering a 15th anniversary T-Shirt designed by Van Holmgren, one of the hottest new local artists in Des Moines, who we are proud to say grew up at First Christian.  Commemorative T-Shirts are for sale in the narthex after the service for $10.00.  All proceeds go to TheARTS@First!

Thank you for 15 years of hot eats and hot music!
