"Cookie Walk" Cookies, Confections & Crafts Sale
For many years this delightful event has been held following on a Sunday 1-2 weeks before Christmas. immediately following worship. The bakers among us are asked to donate a batch or two of their best homemade cookies or other edible delights (past offerings have included fudge, breads, scones, biscotti, popcorn balls and more!) and our crafters are also invited to make something to donate, such as Christmas ornaments or other decorations.
On the day of the event the items being donated should be brought to the Fellowship Hall before worship (by 10:00am if possible) to allow our "Cookie Walk elves" enough time to arrange them. Cookies are sold by weight, priced at $4 per pound. Other edible items, and crafts, should be priced by the person donating them. (Whatever price you put on items you donate will be the right price! Only you know how much it cost you to make them.)
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 styrofoam container and a plastic glove to wear on your cookie-picking hand. Walk around the tables containing hundreds of festive holiday cookies and put into your container(s) any that you wish to buy.
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 treats for the holidays while supporting our church!
Here's a photo tour of how our Cookie Walk works:
