Fish fry to benefit local pastors
Published 7:00 am Tuesday, March 24, 2015
This Thursday, several area churches have joined forces to raise funds for two beloved pastors.
Members of First Baptist Church Carriere, West Union Baptist Church, New Life Church in Nicholson and Roseland Park Baptist Church are hosting a fish fry, First Baptist Church Carriere member Jane Manuel said.
“Bro. Rusty Kuhn, the pastor of New Life Church in Nicholson is battling cancer,” Manuel said. “He is very upbeat, loves the Lord and children. Bro. W.M. Gary Smith is our pastor at First Baptist Church Carriere. He has been out due to a previous injury to his back, for which he is receiving treatment.”
Manuel’s daughter, Michele Miller will be frying fish in her new food trailer, Shelly’s Chuck Wagon. This will be the first time Miller will cook in her trailer, Manuel said.
“Michele has always worked with our youth and is on a mission to help,” Manuel said. “She inherited her culinary skills from her father. One day, God gave her the idea to purchase a food trailer to utilize with fundraising. The truck was delivered in January and she is certified with the Health Departments in Mississippi and Louisiana. We are praying that everyone will come out and buy a plate to help these pastors.”
The benefit fish fry will be held on Thursday, March 26 from 10:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the parking lot of Roseland Park Baptist Church, located at 2130 Hwy. 11 N., Picayune.
The cost is $10 per plate and will include fish, hush puppies, coleslaw and french fries, Manuel said. Advance tickets are available at First Baptist Church Carriere, which is located at 7264 U.S.-11. Tickets will also be available during the event.
