After seven years of failed attempts, Pastor Clint took home the “Golden Crock-Pot” at Sunday’s Seventh Annual Chili Cook-off.

“I’d like to thank my mom for setting a high culinary bar, my kids for their criticism of sub-par meals, and the parishioners of Parkside for their gift of discernment.” Clint stated on his facebook account.

17 chili’s battled it out for supremacy. All were delicious which meant the judges had their work cut out for them. Thank you to the contestants. Thank you to Intern, Jesse Tulman, and his team of hard working servants for putting on the event. Thank you to Maureen and Merna for baking corn bread. Thank you to Brittney for creating the Mexican decor theme.

Next Sunday, August 21st, is our last Summer Sunday and it’s your chance to get in another water fight. We’re also having a BBQ! Come hungry. Come ready to get wet and to soak others (bring your favourite water gun or bucket).

Parkside runs Summer Sunday for two reasons: 1) To make it easier to invite friends and neighbours to church; and 2) It’s Christ-like to have fun and enjoy one another.
