Serenity Chili Cook-Off 2018

Written by: Pastor Dale Marsh

This year’s event was probably one of our best chili cook-offs yet! The contestants were local recovery houses and organizations in our community. I’d like to thank all who participated: Tri County Treatment, Elijah House, Freedom House, DAXIT, Oroville Rescue Mission, Braxton’s Boys and Serenity Chico.
This year winners were Serenity Chico, Tri Counties Treatment and Elijah House.
I’d also like to thank all those who volunteered to help make this our biggest event of the year. Our Serenity Leadership Team managed things, but we had help from all the recovery houses. Tim Moon did the music again this year and Tommy P stepped up on the drums to help out with the music. The Ward family came through with pony rides as usual even with Ron and Linda both in the hospital. Rita and her crew watched over the bounce house to keep our kids safe.
The big win is that once again the Oroville Church of the Nazarene was a beacon of hope to members of our community who struggle with life threatening addictions. All of us at Serenity Group appreciate your prayers and support.
