Posted at 10:31 PM, Jul 15, 2016

Bethlehem United Methodist Church fried up more than 1,000 pounds of fish for their 42nd annual fish fry.

The event was filled with homemade goods like hushpuppies, cole slaw, and 1,800 pounds of catfish.

The fish fry is the church's main fundraiser for its outreach programs like building tiny houses for the homeless, but it's also a way to let the community know they're there for them.

"I just think it's a time where we can welcome our community here. We want to share hospitality, we want to share hope,we want to just kind of say we're glad you're here come and have some good fish," said Ryan Bennett.

The church's pastor said they expected to serve between 3,500 and 4,000 thousand people tonight.

The fry is the second longest running event in Williamson County.
