Holy Smokes

By Gaye Lynn Loufek

Youth Summer Missions is alive and well at Grace United Methodist Church. Much of the success comes from YOU, our congregation and our community.

On May 7, from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m., 5-B's Bar-b-Que will be in the lower parking lot of Grace United Methodist Church (300 East Gartner Road, Naperville) grilling pork chops and chicken for our annual Holy Smokes Drive-thru Bar-B-Que fundraiser.

Rain or shine, youth and adults will be eager to serve you in the comfort of your own car, carhop style. Bring your pre-paid meal ticket (or purchase one the day of), drive into the lower lot, follow the directions of the volunteers, and a server will greet you, take your ticket, and bring your meal(s) to you within minutes. It is a BLAST!

Tickets are available for purchase by visiting the Activity Center between services on Sundays, from any participant of our Youth Summer Mission trips or a limited number on the day of. Prices for One Meat meals (either chicken or pork chop) are $10/meal; Two Meat Meals are $12; or a Combo Meals (1/4 chicken + 1 pork chop) are $12. Do you have smaller mouths to feed? A children's meal (hot dog) is $5. All meals come with yummy sides: baked beans, cole slaw, applesauce, roll, and butter. Yum!

All of the food is prepared fresh on the premises. Limited amounts of same day purchases are available but pre-paid tickets are preferred.

Invite your friends and neighbors to join us for the fundraiser to support us in our travels this summer to Birmingham, AL and around the Chicago area.
