"Cookie Walk" Cookies, Confections & Crafts Sale
This annual fundraiser takes place following worship on a Sunday approximately two weeks before Christmas. A month or so beforehand we ask our bakers to sign up to donate a batch or two of their best homemade cookies or other confections (fudge, breads, pies, cakes, scones, popcorn balls, etc.!) and our crafters to make something to donate to this fun event.
The items being donated should be brought to the Fellowship Hall by 10:00 if possible on the morning of the event, to allow our "Cookie Walk elves" enough time to arrange them. Cookies are sold by weight ($4 per pound) and all other items are to be priced by the person donating them. (Whatever price you put on items you donate will be the right price!)
If you wish to purchase cookies and/or other items, after our worship service go to our Fellowship Hall where you'll be given a box and a plastic glove. Walk around the tables containing hundreds of festive holiday cookies and put into your box any that you wish to buy. You may buy more than one box; however, we ask that you not take more than three of any one kind of cookie the first time around, to give everyone a chance to get some of their favorites.
When you reach the end of the tables, your box will be weighed and you'll be told the total amount you owe for any cookies and additional items you've selected. Please note that we can't accept credit cards, only cash or checks.
Please consider contributing homemade treats or crafts and/or buying some made by others — a wonderful way to obtain a selection of wonderful treats for the holidays while supporting our church!
Here's a photo tour of how our Cookie Walk works:
Pick up a food container and a disposable glove
to wear on your cookie-picking hand.
Walk among the tables of goodies, placing in
your container the cookies you want to buy.
The available items usually include cookies ... more
cookies … fudge ... scones ... and more!
Cookies cost $4.00 per pound. Other items are
priced as marked.
When you've finished choosing the cookies and
any other items you want, you may need to
wait in line for a few minutes to pay for them,
as pictured below.
 Enjoy your treats, and thank you for supporting our church!
