Hope everyone is having a great break from school and enjoying time with family, friends, and food this weekend!I am super excited that December and Advent both start this Sunday, how about you? We’ve got some great youth stuff coming up in the next month:

On Sunday, December 8, we have Youth Group meetings at our usual times: 4:30 for Middle School and 6 pm for High School.

Then the following weekend, we’re putting on a Cookie Walk! What is a Cookie Walk? It’s a special kind of bake sale that is all about cookies: round cookies, bar cookies, fancy cookies, classic cookies! Our Cookie Walk is going to happen in Fellowship Hall on Sunday, December 15 and will be accompanied by displays of nativity sets on loan that day from members of our congregation.  It’s going to be a super festive day!

We’re asking Youth and their families to contribute homemade – or nearly homemade – cookies to create a massive table of cookies that our congregations members will buy on Sunday, December 15th.

Folks who like to bake at home and are willing to donate some cookies to the Cookie Walk can bring them to the church either on Saturday afternoon (12/14) or before the 8:30 service on Sunday morning.  On that Saturday from 4-6 pm, we’ll also have cookie baking fiesta at the church for all Youth, 6th grade on up, to come help bake and decorate cookies and get the tables in Fellowship all set up. 

On Sunday, we’ll have containers for people to purchase and then they’ll be able to choose from our amazing assortment of cookies. So we’ll need some Youth to turn on their best salesperson charm and help our cookie customers. The proceeds will support out Youth Group activities, especially our team going to the Montreat Youth Conference this summer (see more about that below).

So, if you want to bake at home, bake all together on Saturday, 12/14, or  sell cookies on 12/15, sign up to help make the Cookie Walk a success by clicking here: tinyurl.com/fpcy-Cookies2019
