Shop With A Cop Chili Cook-Off, Chili Supper & Silent Aution
October 22, 2016
5:00 - 8:30 pm
Carroll Electric Community Room
The Shop with a Cop program is an amazing program that helps local children have a great Christmas. With the help of our local schools, kids are selected & meet with our local law enforcement officers from Carroll County, Cities of Berryville, Green Forest and Eureka Springs as well as the Arkansas State Police. This program will give a certain dollar amount to each child to purchase Christmas Gifts for themselves or others...our local LEO's are paired up with the kids to assist them with their purchases. I wish everyone could see the look in the kids eyes that light up when the officer walks up in uniform to introduce themselves...Plus, it builds up a relationship between the child & officer so that our kids know that they can trust & go to our law enforcement officers in a time of need.
Chili Cook-off starts at 5pm, Top winners will receive a Trophy & Bragging Rights!
Chili Supper 6-8:30. Bowl of Chili, Crackers or Cornbread with Dessert & Bottle of Water.

Please join us at Holiday Island Community Church, on Wednesday Afternoons from 1 – 2 PM for our new Bible Study, starting August 3, and running weekly through September 14.
The series is “Walking with God in the Desert”. It is a 7-part DVD series shot in the Holy Land. The series goes along with Pastor Jeff Timm’s sermon on the “Storms of Life”.
Are you going through a difficult period of life? Do you need help understanding a past “storm”? Have you experienced a crisis of faith?
During these desert times, it is easy to think that God has disappeared.
Instead, discover that it is only when we are totally dependent on Him that we find God closer than ever and can experience God’s amazing Grace and provision.
Everyone is welcome:
This series will be given in the Library on the lower level at Holiday Island Community Church
188 State Line Drive, Holiday Island. 479-253-8200
