Freeze Off is cool idea
A novel ice cream contest recently promoted Sunday school at Enid-First church. Each adult class produced an entry for the “Freeze Off,” akin to a chili cook-off. The contest was part of an ice cream social designed by the church’s Adult Ministry Leadership team. More than 125 people attended.
Class members staffed table displays in fellowship hall, offering information about each class, such as types of studies and mission projects—plus cookies, brownies, and samples of homemade ice cream.
Each person arriving at the event was handed a sampling cup, spoon, and a voting chip. After touring the room, people voted by putting their chips in bowls beside their favorite entries.
Susan Southall said the event was a success and spawned more ideas for next time, “like having people vote with change from their own pockets, and then giving the money to missions.”
The associate pastor said, “Our oldest adult class didn’t feel they could make and deliver ice cream to the church, so they handed out Tootsie Rolls from an ice cream tub.”
First place went to the B.I.G. (Believers In God) class, for a cookies-and-cream recipe. The Faithquest class was named runner-up for its “Summer Surprise.”
