Donate to Old Mission Gazette

It’s time again for the Annual Chicken BBQ, hosted by Old Mission Peninsula United Methodist Church. This year’s BBQ will take place on June 23, 2018, 4:30 – 6:30 p.m., at the church, 16426 Center Road on the Old Mission Peninsula (top of the hill on the right, about 14 miles out from “The Forks” – intersection of Center Road and Peninsula Drive in by town).

Honestly, I’m not sure what their secret is, but this chicken is, without a doubt, the best I’ve ever had. Part of the deliciousness is that the guys cook it over an open fire in the BBQ pit right there at the church.

The best-chicken-you’ve-ever-had is accompanied by a legacy of church recipes, including Mrs. Lindsey’s coleslaw, Annie Fouch’s Cherry Whatchamacallit, baked beans, dinner rolls, a beverage, and the church ladies’ array of the best home-made desserts in all the land. Seriously. Methodists can cook. When everything else in the world is in question, we can be sure of that fact.

Take-outs are available by calling (231) 223-4393, and a free will donation is much appreciated.
