2020 COOKIE DRIVE THRU IS ON!

The Tanzania Mission Committee has planned a Covid-19 version of our annual Cookie Walk! We are inviting our church friends, members and community to a Cookie Drive Thru on Saturday, December 12, from 9AM to noon, where you can pick up a $15-dollar box of cookies. Instead of coming into the narthex, cookie buyers will drive thru the portico, pay for cookies, and committee members will hand your cookies to you in your car. Please wear your mask as we come to your car. The TMC members will box the homemade Christmas cookies on Friday, and we pledge to pack the boxes with a great assortment of your wonderful cookies as if we are packing them for ourselves!

2020 COOKIE DRIVE THRU BAKERS NEEDED

And now for St. Peter’s famous cookie bakers: We still need you to sign up to bake a double batch of your best Christmas cookies! Please use this SignUp Genius link to let us know what you will bake for us.  We still request no bar cookies). https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0d4aaeab2ba0fe3-bakers.
