Our church is offering up a wonderful ministry this holiday that literally anyone can do on their own. Try out a few of the recipes posted on here and you’re on your way to a new holiday tradition.
Our church is creating small bundles of cookies (2-3 in each bundle) to hand out on Christmas Eve. The idea is to take them and deliver the bundles to those that are working that evening – the pharmacist, the policeman, the convenience store worker, the grocery clerk, the hospital staff, the fireman. It is a way to spread a little holiday cheer (no matter what holiday that person celebrates) at a time that they probably don’t get to celebrate much.
And, think of the wonderful message this relays to our children – that it is better to give than to receive, and while the cookies might be yummy, someone else may enjoy them as well. And that is a wonderful lesson to learn this holiday season.
