Winter Wonderland: the party

Sunday, January 21 6:00pm

(snow date: January 28)



It's potluck style - with a twist

There is a lot at Winter Wonderland about food. It's like a dinner party with 97 of your closest friends. And that food comes in two larger categories: competition food, and casual food.

Competition details are available below. (scroll a bit further)

But competition is not required.  Please bring your favorite dish to share. Or if you don't know what to bring, you can always ask our party captain for a lead. Mindy is reachable here

Bring a friend. Make a friend.

Winter Wonderland is a great opportunity to make some new friends in an easy, fun, interactive space. So take this opportunity to integrate your worlds! 

And if you are new to Center Church, or have literally never set foot inside the building, you are totally welcome! 

The Competitions

It's not all fun and games. Well, yes, it is all fun and all games. But like serious fun. There are bragging rights involved! And actual prizes.

How to enter competition:

So glad you asked. There are three requirements: 

1. In order to be considered for competition, your dish must fall into one of the following categories AND

2. It must have been registered by Friday, January 19. You can do so here. AND

3. The dish cannot be a previous Winter Wonderland competition champion.

What to bring:

If your dish needs to stay warm, bring it in something that will keep it warm. We have the serving spaces set with electricity.

Please bring your preferred serving utensil. (Also, please take that utensil back home with you afterward)

Definitely bring the cheese, sour cream. guacamole or sprinkles that are the must-haves to accompany your dish.

Contest Categories:


Beef, chicken, venison. With beans. Without beans. Everything in this category is a legit chili.


Enchilada soup, potato soup, stew. These are all the warm soupy things that are not a chili.


Let's be real, every meal is better with a yummy dessert. These are the cookies, cakes, pies, cake bombs. Everything chocolate, fruit... or yes, even vegetable desserts fall into this category. (Like carrot cake... which is vegetable based, yet still technically cake.)

Global Great:

Our brand new category in honor of our international family. Bring your favorite international dish - bonus points if it's grandma's recipe!
