Good Chili for a Good Cause

On Saturday, October 12, from 4:30 to 6:30 pm, Halloweentown revelers will be able to enjoy a chili supper and help house two families in St. Helens.  Five churches of St. Helens are combining to share their cooking skills to raise money for two townhouses being built by Columbia County Habitat for Humanity. The hosting church, First Evangelical Lutheran, is conveniently located only six blocks from the Courthouse, at 360 Wyeth Street. (Parking is available.) The admission charge of $8 for an adult and $4 for a child will entitle guests to unlimited tastings of multiple chilis, plus cornbread and cookies.  Costumed guests will also receive candy from the costumed servers.

Members of the participating churches are having fun digging out Halloween costumes and refining family chili recipes.  “My son-in-law is trying to coordinate his pirate costume and his chili, experimenting with making black chili,” says Vicar Jaime Sanders of Christ Episcopal Church.  Consideration is also being given to the variety of eating preferences of guests: the chilis will include vegetarian options, and Pastor Jared Maddox of First United Methodist Church promises a delicious gluten-free cornbread. Guests will be invited to vote for their favorite chili, because of course every cook thinks theirs is the best!

The Chili Cook-Off is part of the commitment by churches of the St. Helens Ministerial Association to a “Faith Build,” creating new affordable homes for two families of our community. The participating churches, First Lutheran, Plymouth Presbyterian, the Christian Church of St. Helens, First United Methodist, and Christ Episcopal, and their members, are donating the food and covering expenses, so all proceeds will go to construction costs.
