100 Foot Banana Split
Wow! Look at all the happy kids! Many of these kids memorized hundreds of verses this year. 3 of our teens received the coveted Awana Timothy Award.To celebrate, 17 gallons of ice cream was served up with chocolate, sprinkles, bananas and the works - 100 feet of ice cream in a rain gutter!
Hundreds of hungry people went away full and happy after attending our first annual pizza blast. Our hard-working teens served the pizza with a smile. Proceeds benefit the great kids outreach at Chili.
One of our teens just returned from Israel. He showed a bunch of his pictures at church. A group of us are planning a trip to Israel in February 2014 or 2015. Pastor Neal has helped lead many trips to the Middle East. It's been said that a trip to Israel is worth a master's degree education in Bible.

300 people enjoyed the 3rd Annual Tri-County Wing Contest and Wild Game Dinner this year. Some folks are just calling it the "Critter Cookoff." Check out this front page newspaper article and this great article.
There are three main parts to the evening every year:
1. Judging of wings that you bring by our panel of judges.
2. Atomic Wing Challenge: Man up and eat the hottest wings on earth. Adult and Junior categories. Tee shirts and gift certificates awarded to winners. Eat the most wings in four minutes and you win.
3. Wild Game Dinner. Attendees enjoyed whole roast deer, elk lasagna, wild turkey, goose, rabbit and Cajun jambalaya with fresh-from-Lousiana crawfish tails and smoked alligator sausage...PLUS a whole bunch more food the great folks in the community brought to the event.
Plan now to attend next year's "Critter Cookoff" at 5pm on Sunday, February 9, 2014.
Come enjoy Easter Sunday at Chili. Brunch starts at 9:30am, with service following at 10:30am. Easter Egg hunt for the kids. Special music by the kids.
Come play Hantis!
Hantis is the latest game we have for Jr. High through adults. It's a blast to play. We've just build a new set of tables and ordered an offical set. Click here to see a video clip from a recent Hantis championship match here at Chili. Bring your friends and come out on Wednesday nights at 6:30 to get in on the new Hantis action here in eastern Ohio.
The 2012 Christmas Pageant at Chili was wonderful. 35 kids sang, the adult choir sounded good and the animals made us chuckle. The goat really wanted to eat the hay bales surrounding baby Jesus, but diligent shepherds kept that from happening!
The Daughter Banquet was a huge success, with 35 men dressing in white shirts and dark pants to serve food. 150 ladies enjoyed shrimp, carved roast beef, wildfire chopped salad, chicken piccata, a chocolate fountain, humorous drama, great music and each other's company.
Sounds of Grace:
Over biggest ever Sunday morning crowd came out to enjoy the Sounds of Grace. The group sounded terrific. Pastor Jim's message on Why Life Hurts was insightful and challenging. The BBQ was tasty and the homemade ice cream was served in multiple flavors: apple, chocolate chip and vanilla. We can hardly wait to have this event again. But we'll have to wait until the fall of 2014 to get them back, they're in such demand. Thanks for attending and making this event a huge success in the Chili community. Our Congressman and his wife and and local judge and his wife came out to enjoy the event. It was an honor to have them attend.
The Chili Crossroads Bible Church had the biggest and smoothest opening night of Awana ever with 63 children in attendance the first Wednesday night of the season. Awana is a youth ministry for children age 2-18. All are welcome. Awana meets every Wednesday night from 6:30-8pm. Coffee and Bible study for adults.
Teen camp was great...
18 of our teens ended their summer with 48 hours of pure fun at Camp Chili. The boys slept in a treehouse 15 feet in the air. We ate homemade ice cream, buffalo wings and steak. We played Chinese elimination, capture the flag, and had an egg toss contest. We took a 7am "Polar Bear Trickle" after hiking to a big waterfall. We swam in the pool, played glow in the dark capture the flag and made fry pies around the campfire. Every one of the teens said they want to "win gold" with God by serving Him with their lives. Please pray for them and try to encourage them on this worthy journey.
The 3rd Annual Community Cookout was a huge success.
A neighbor brought and cooked fresh sweet corn. Three grills smoked. The tractor PTO churned our home made ice cream. This year we had vanilla and peach. Mmmm.
This year we added an archery tournament.
...and a 100 foot slip and slide.
Seems the kids liked it. They added soap to make it slipperier. After three hours, we had some clean kids!
Starting September 5, every Wednesday night from 6:30-8pm we have a blast with AWANA clubs for kids aged 2-18...and an adult Bible study on life's BIG questions. Come join the fun!
Our 3rd Annual Community Carnival was a huge success. About 300 people enjoyed the obstacle course, bounce house, and great games designed and staffed by the awesome folks at the Chili Crossroads Bible Church. And, of course, the great message that "Christ died for our sins and rose again" was presented at the Adventure Tent and Survey Tent. That was fun!
Mission Possible, our annual mission conference, was the best ever. The kids enjoyed a petting zoo of African and Israeli animals. We had the race between the tortoise and the hare. The tortoise won! Our missionaries to Africa and our Jewish missionary to St. Louis spoke and we enjoyed a Passover Seder and an Israeli breakfast.
100 foot banana split was attended by 100 of our Awana children. Wallhouse provided 11 gallons of ice cream and our township trustee made 10 gallons of ice cream with his custom-made ice cream machine.
40 of the great folks at the Chili Crossroads Bible Church worked shifts at the 2011 Coshocton County Fair. They did 520 Spiritual Viewpoint Surveys and got to see 76 people trust Christ as their Savior. What a great experience! This was a fun and easy way to share the good news that "Christ died for our sins and rose again." We made a lot of new friends in the community and are seeing friends we made there come to church. We can hardly wait for next year to do it again!
Thanking God for our new bus...
God has blessed our church with a beautiful 33-seat bus. We've taken it to Chicago and the big screen TV kept us entertained. We use it every Wednesday night to pick up kids at the park in Baltic for AWANA clubs. The bus arrives at 6pm and returns at 8:20pm. Come have a blast with us!
