Participants are asked to submit their name, address, phone number, email and chili category to the church office at Or, pick up an entry form at church on Monday-Thursday, 9-11a.m. The deadline for entries is Sunday, Sept. 21. Winners in each category will receive a prize. Entering, tasting and judging the chili competition are free.

In addition to the cook-off, people can feast on a big bowl of in-house, chef’s special chili with all the fixings.
