COLLEGEDALE, Tenn. — Lifelong Adventist and faithful potluck contributor Chip Skeete was disfellowshipped from Collegedale Church after church elders discovered Rice Krispies in the Special K Loaf he brought to potluck last Sabbath.
Church Board members were not impressed with Skeete’s excuse that he had only discovered his meager supply of Special K five minutes before Friday sundown and was therefore prevented from purchasing another box.
Skeete was curtly informed that he should not have left potluck preparation as late as he had, and that it had most likely also led to cooking on the Sabbath — another factor in his ejection from church.
The board said in a statement posted on the church’s website that they hoped to set an example in their treatment of Skeete’s case. “If we don’t clamp down on this kind of behavior, the next thing you’ll see is members bringing freshly purchased KFC buckets to potluck and calling them FriChik.”
