Second Annual Chili Cook-off

Once again, Mosaic Church celebrated All Saints’ Day with a Chili Cook-off! Eleven people made their best chili, and brought it the church for tasting.

Church members lined up to try the chilis, spooning samples into little cups.

The little cups were a great idea! Last year we just had regular-sized bowls, which meant that people who wanted to try a little of all the chilis had to juggle a dozen bowls at once. The little cups made it much easier to try all the entries!

After loading our plates/cups, we all sat down to dig in.

Once we were eating, the hard work began – deciding which chili we liked best! After making our choice, we put our ballots into the ballot bowl:

Next, it was time for the vote counting:

Once the votes were counted, Pastor Rob and Amanda announced the winners.

This year, there was a tie – two people won first place! Luckily we had two trophies!

I was thinking today that, since this coming Sunday is Ledo’s Sunday, there will have been almost an entire month during which our church ate Sunday lunch together, with only one week without an all-church activity. This kind of purposeful community-building is something I really appreciate about Mosaic.
