The United Methodist Women want to cook for you on Tuesday.

First United Methodist Church will be serving home-cooked food-to-go to raise money for a seminary student from 3 to 6 p.m. at the fellowship hall of the church on Belleville Avenue.

The event is sponsored by the United Methodist Women, and they will be selling everything from appetizers to desserts, with a wide range of dishes in between. They have even persuaded some of the men in the church to help do the cooking. Pastor Ed Glaize is appropriately cooking Shepherd’s Pie, and some of the other men are cooking chicken with the unusual name of Trash Can Chicken.

“All the food will be reasonably priced,” said Hermine Downing. “People can come and see what all we have and then purchase what they want to take home with them. We’re not selling plates, but dishes. We have casseroles of all kinds, soups, stews, meats, and plenty of desserts to go with it. A lot of our people have responded to cook something for us and we should have lots of food.”

The ladies, and the men, will be cooking their favorite dishes to sell, to help a seminary student. Kristen Etheridge grew up in Brewton and is a former member of First United Methodist Church.

She is now in her second year of seminary at Chandler School of Theology at Emory University in Atlanta.

The UMW is trying to help her with the expenses of school.

Kandy McDaniel said that all the food will be placed in containers that do not have to be returned, so that will make it easier on everyone. She said that the food will range from appetizers to condiments to any other category that would be in a cookbook.
