Cookie Bakers Needed for College Ministry

The College Ministry needs volunteers to bake cookies for our weekly Cookie Ministry.  Everyone knows that college students love homemade treats so each week we deliver cookies to our first time college visitors.  The obligation is to bring 2-3 dozen homemade cookies to the church office on your designated Sunday (one time each semester).  We package and deliver them to the students.  Just sign up and we'll mail you a Cookie Ministry schedule as well as a reminder card on your designated week.  It's an easy way to share God's love with students who are far from home and looking to connect with a church in Lexington.
