The Cookie Walk, previously scheduled for 12/9, is now scheduled to be held Saturday, December 16th from 9:00 a.m. to noon.
Time to start baking cookies for our Annual Youth Cookie Walk! Here is how it goes. We ask as many people as possible to bake us homemade Christmas cookies. We put them out on tables in the fellowship hall. People come and purchase an empty box (small or large) at the door, and then 'walk' around the tables filling their box from the wide assortment of cookies.This is a great way to enjoy Christmas cookies during the holidays. They also make great gifts for family, friends, the office, neighbors, and shut-ins.
Bring cookies to the church Friday, December 15th or Saturday 16th before 8:00 am. Please label them with the name of the cookie.

CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS AND GIFTS - Ann Perry will have Christmas ornaments and gifts of olivewood from the Holy Land for sale in the Fellowship Hall during coffee fellowship for the next couple of weeks. Proceeds benefit children's programs of the Holy Land Christian Ecumenical Foundation.
