Fish Fry


Every third Saturday of the month, except for the months of November and December, the fish fry draws hungry people from around the area to enjoy fish, ribs, chicken and a wide assortment of vegetables, as well as desserts, lemonade and iced tea.

Mable Clark and her helpers fix up the meals each month and serve it up with a smile.  The fish fries usually begin at noon and run until 7pm.

The cost is $18 and to-go plates are available. Additional donations are also gratefully accepted.

While you dine in the church's Fellowship Building, you'll enjoy views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, as well as the old soapstone mine from which the church draws its name.  Proceeds from the fish fry are used to keep the church going, as well as preserve the historic slave cemetery that was discovered on property adjacent to the church.
