Cookies for Troops

First Church is baking cookies to be sent with love to the troops overseas for Christmas! Instructions, boxes and everything you need to package your cookies will be available for pick up on Sundays, December 1 and 8. Take a box home and bake basic, sturdy and delicious cookies that will last for the trip to the overseas troops. Please bake any variety of cookie that excludes nuts: oatmeal, chocolate chip, sugar, etc.

Nothing too fancy or delicate!  Bring the boxes back with cookies packed as instructed on Friday, December 13 (to the church office before 3 pm) or on Sunday, December 15 to the kitchen in the Family Life Center. Please don’t bring the boxes back before these dates, and please don’t bake your cookies too soon. We want our troops to receive the freshest possible cookies!

The cookies will be delivered on Tuesday, December 17 to two Air Force bases where the transport squadrons will deliver them to these men and women who put their lives on the line for us.

If you have questions or would like to help, please contact Phyllis Young at

Thank you for sharing your love and baking skills!
