GRAND FORKS (WDAZ-TV) - People at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Grand Forks had a friendly chili cook-off Sunday to help out their youth group.

The annual competition and silent auction will help the church's youth group raise money for their trip to the National Youth Gathering in San Antonio, TX next summer.

Last year's cook-off brought in $3,200.

Fifteen youth and four chaperones will be making the trip.

"A better understanding of Christ and my religion, more confidence in myself, and closer to my friends," youth group member Zane Borth said.

"I'm looking forward to meeting all the different youth that are going to be there and spending time with youth in our church too," youth group member Emily Anderson said.

The trip will cost the group about $35,000.
