A few months ago during services at Little Eagle Creek Christian Church, 3233 W. 166th St., Westfield, a young man named Tavian Tinney stood up and asked for healing prayers for a classmate at Carey Ridge Elementary who is undergoing treatment for Leukemia. This request brought tears to the eyes of many in the congregation. In addition to prayer, the members decided they wanted to do more.
Little Eagle Creek Christian Church is hosting a Chili cook-off and Euchre party from 5 to 8 p.m. Feb. 21. The free will offering will benefit third grader Elliott Ogle and 100 percent of the proceeds will be donated to the family. Church officials said guests may bring a crock pot of their favorite chili to enter, or simply come and enjoy the variety of recipes. Hot dogs, drinks and deserts also will be provided. The Euchre party will follow dinner. Donations also may be made directly to the fund that has been set up for Ogle mailed to: “Elliott’s Army” c/o Regions Bank, 2155 E. 146th St., Westfield, 46074.
