January 6th is our first 1st Wednesday program of 2010. It is also the actual date of the Epiphany, when we celebrate the Wise Men from the East who followed the star to find the Baby Jesus. So, we are going to celebrate that day by having a Chili Cook-Off as the meal for that night. There is a Sign-Up sheet in the Narthex and in the Fellowship Hall for anyone who wants to enter the Chili Cook-Off. There will be prizes for the winners in each of three categories of chili: The Most Flavorful Chili, The Spiciest Chili, and The Most Unusual Chili. There will also be a competition for the best Corn Bread.
For dessert, we will have the traditional Epiphany Cake, in which an uncooked bean is baked in the cake. Whoever gets the piece of cake with the bean in it gets to be the King or Queen for the evening, gets crowned with a special crown, and receives three gifts fit for royalty!
Come, join the fun! Cook up your best chili or cornbread recipe, and enter the competition!
