A local church is hosting its annual auction to support missionary work.
Byers Avenue United Methodist Church in Joplin hosted it’s Seventh Annual Chili Cookoff and Dessert Auction today.
Members of the church voted on their favorite chili with dollars and bid on the most delicious cupcakes, cookies, and pies.
Since this event has been a hit for years, directors know that church members will rally together for local ministries.

“We’re a small church with a pretty small congregation, so seeing that you know everyone comes out and participates in this event really makes us feel good. It makes us feel like we’ve done something to help bring the church together as a group too. All united towards local mission ministries.” says Dawnielle Lipscomb, Dir. of Outreach Ministries
For next year, Byers Avenue United Methodist Church is already planning for an even bigger event.
