Congratulations to the Bridge Street Tap Room and chef Aaron Hagen for winning Charlevoix’s 14th annual chili cook off!! Chef Hagen was inspired by and created the Hogzillachili with sous chef Charles Pitcher. Hogzillachili was #1 in the lineup of seven area restaurants. It was a very close race and we received numerous compliments on each of the delicious chilis.

We want to thank all of the participating restaurants, Bridge Street Tap Room, the Weathervane with Pork and Beans, Hotdoggers with Chillilicious, Pigs Eat’n Ribs with Notorious P.I.G., Scovies and their Chicken Chili, The Cantina with Pork Black Bean and Corn, and the French Quarter with their Ran Delicious chili. Thanks to all of our volunteers who made the day possible and finally, a big thank you to everyone who came out to sample and vote for their favorite chili. Serving as the judges, you made this fundraiser a great success!

The Charlevoix United Methodist Church will use the proceeds to support the church’s mission, including a workcamp mission to the Henderson Settlement in Kentucky, support for the local Kids Hope program, and to fund packets of necessities for the homeless in Northern Michigan.

Pentecost is Sunday, May 20, 2018

What is Pentecost?

Pentecost is celebrated by Christians around the world. It is the day that the Holy Spirit descended upon the Apostles and other followers of Jesus Christ; they were assembled in the Upper Room in Jerusalem as instructed by Jesus before his ascension to Heaven (Luke 22:11-12). Pentecost is celebrated on the 50th day after Easter.

1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. 2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. 3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

Acts 2:1-4 (King James Version)

Please join us for our Pentecost service on Sunday, at 10:00 a.m. and hear the pastor’s sermon, “Praying in the Spirit.”
