Autumn has arrived!  It is a time honored tradition at Herndon UMC for the United Methodist Men (UMM) to work together and make some delicious Brunswick Stew.  This stew is the real deal, cooked in a big pot over an open flame with fresh ingredients and hours of preparation and cooking.  Return customers mark their calendars for the opportunity to purchase this stew.  It is packaged and sold by the quart and the great news is it freezes well so you can enjoy some now but save some to enjoy this winter. You may order stew ahead of time (see Presale below). This year’s preparation and sale date coincides with our Trunk or Treat event on October 27, and pickup will be available between 1 and 4pm.

This annual event is a major fundraiser for the Herndon UMM and the many ways they support the missions and ministries of Herndon UMC. The UMM couldn't do this without the support of the congregation.  By donating ingredients, you may help ensure another successful fundraiser this year.

Support UMM Missions -- Donate Ingredients

UMM needs your support in preparing our annual Brunswick Stew on October 27.  Please help us by donating the ingredients (chickens, carrots, potatoes, etc.).   All ingredients need to be received in the Church kitchen by 5:00pm, Friday, October 26.  There are several options of furnishing the cooked chickens.  You may buy pre-cooked whole chickens, pulled/cut up, placed in Ziplock bags, and then frozen.  Alternatively, chicken breasts can be purchased, boiled/broiled, cut up, placed in Ziplock bags, and then frozen.  Chicken Broth is also needed either from the cooked chickens or by purchasing cartons.
