BBQ Chicken

Our next BBQ Chicken Fundraiser/Outreach is scheduled for Friday, May 4, 2018.

At our semi-annual BBQ Chicken Fundraiser/Outreach, the church body comes together to prepare plates containing:

  • 1/2 chicken, grilled w/BBQ sauce;
  • boiled potatoes;
  • green beans;
  • a dinner roll;
  • a dessert.

Dining options include:

  • eating at the church (in which case, a drink is included with the meal);
  • carry out;
  • local delivery (to the Clayton, NC area – deliveries must be arranged ahead of the event).

With the meal, we include literature about Christianity, salvation, and information about our church.

Come out, support our church, and share in the faith, food, and fellowship!
