Horizon Church will host its annual Soup-er Bowl Sunday Soup & Chili Cookoff following the 10 a.m. service on Sunday, February 12. The public is invited to attend the service, and all are welcome to participate in the cookoff.

Cirela Peredo Bost was crowned winner of the 2022 contest for her surf and turf chowder.

“The Super Bowl is on nearly everyone’s calendar and for most people, it is an exciting cultural and community affair,” Co-Pastor Jason Bost said. “Horizon is a church that wants to be engaged in whatever is on the minds of the community, and we are using this somewhat unconventional event to do just that! Our goal is to enjoy some good food and fellowship while showing everyone the love of Christ through this event and the other ministries of Horizon Church.”

To enter the cookoff, bring a crockpot of your soup or chili to the morning service. All in attendance will get a ticket to use in voting for their favorite submission. Local businesses and vendors have donated prizes to be awarded to the winner.

“Our Horizon Church tagline is ‘a place for new beginnings.’ Hopefully, this event will attract some folks who don’t normally go to church, but may be open to attending an event like this,” said Charles Williams, co-pastor at Horizon Church.


Event sponsors include Chili’s Restaurant in Statesville, Pla Mor Bowling Lanes in Statesville, Dairy Queen in Statesville, George Pappas’ Liberty Lanes Bowling in Mooresville and Sport Clips Haircuts of Mooresville.
