Julie Franke and Julie Tennie, both of Oakfield, enjoy serving at a recent dinner served by the Oakfield United Methodist Church.
The Oakfield United Methodist Church, located at 220 S. Main St., and famous for its "dinners," will add a Smoked Barbeque Rib Dinner to its schedule of yearly meal. Planned for Saturday, April 13 from 4:30 to 7 p.m., Karen O'Laire, a church leader and dinner coordinator, says, "This is a new venture for this church community. In an effort to create a change of pace, we have dropped the "Chicken & Biscuit" dinner and are trying something new - a Smoked Barbeque Pork dinner.
The menu will include a seven-layer salad, smoked BBQ ribs, baked potato and sour cream, green beans almondine, rolls and butter, and coffee or milk. And - for dessert, the church ladies will provide their homemade tortes, famous throughout the county."
Because ribs are an expensive proposition, only advance sales will be available. The tickets are priced at $12 for adults; and $6 for children 5 to 12 years old. Tickets must be ordered by April 5, and can be reserved or purchased by calling Karen O'Laire at 924-4440; or Julie Tennie at 583-3848.
The people of the Oakfield United Methodist Church have open hearts, open minds and open doors - and welcome all to its dinners scheduled throughout the year and on Sunday mornings at 8:45 a.m.
