COOKIES FOR THE JAIL MINISTRIES

Christmas is a very lonely time to be in jail. The Council of Christian Communions would like to offer these men and women an expression that they are not forgotten, nor are they separated from the love of God. You can help by providing any type of cookie--decorated sugar, chocolate chip or oatmeal raisin.  They need to be 2-3 inches in size. Please place in a box with wax paper or cardboard between (no plastic bags).  Cookies are needed at the church by Sunday, December 15th.  Please mark them "Jail Ministery." Help is needed to pack the cookies. Please see Gerry Coffey.




Don't forget to buy socks for the Walking to the Manger service project....thanks and blessings to all....Sue
