Cookie Walk

Membership/Care Committee is hosting their annual Cookie Walk where members and friends of Malta UMC can participate in a giant cookie/candy exchange for just $7.50 per pound. Come to Malta UMC Fellowship Hall on Saturday morning, December 10, 2016 between 9 and 11 a.m. to choose your own assortment of Christmas cookies and candy.

Our committee is excited about this fun way for church members to share some Christmas spirit and sample each other’s baking talents. If everyone participates, how many different cookies could one sample?  We have also become well known to several out of town guests who return each year, saying “Malta has the best selection.”

All ladies of the church will be asked to bake at least 4 dozen of their favorite Christmas cookies to donate to our Cookie Walk on Saturday morning, December 10.  We would like all bakers to identify the kind of cookies they bring and, if possible, key ingredients—nuts, chocolate, dates, etc.  Please do not pre-package cookies as we display them on large trays.  Deliver cookies and candy to Malta UMC between 8 and 9 a.m. Saturday morning.   If you would like to select cookies at the time you deliver, we will accommodate you, even though the Cookie Walk officially opens at 9 a.m.

Each year our profits are used to discreetly give someone in “special” need in our community a bit of help at holiday time and to assist in an area of need in our church.  We sincerely appreciate everyone’s donations and purchases in making our Cookie Walk a success!
