On Sept. 21st the fire-pits will light up at 3 AM for the ninth annual UMM Chicken-Que!  The United Methodist Men of Peachtree City United Methodist Church will once again man the grills for this much anticipated event!  The Men have perfected the grilling process and deliver a delicious golden brown chicken that is second to none in the area.  Cole Slaw, Baked Beans and a slice of Bread complete the meal at a price of $8.00. It is take-out only and you don’t even have to get out of your car!  Buy your tickets today and plan to drive through the campus at 400 Windgate Road on the 21st between11:00 am and 1:00 pm and have your hot meals handed to you.  Please consider purchasing an extra ticket to cover the cost of a meal for one of our Police Officers or Fire-fighters who willingly place themselves in harm’s way for us each day.
