Hillcrest United Church Story and Recipe (Cook) Book
For this fund-raising project sponsored by the Ways and Means Committee, we want to publish a book about the church, a little history, but more about how food binds us together. We want to preserve our stories and illustrate how food is a deeply important part of our covenant relationship with God and with each other. The Bible, of course, is replete with food in such a context. No one would deny that here at Hillcrest we are good with food, both for fundraising and for fun. So let’s get started! We want to hear from you with recipes and with stories, please. We hope this insert and announcement will be useful. You can give your notes to any of us on the project committee: Sally Warrington, Elizabeth LeLacheur, Hughie MacDonald, or Margaret Campion; leave it in the offering plate or drop it by the church office. The outline with this message might help get you started. We can help with story or recipe and we will!
Our goal is to have the book ready in time to give as presents at Christmas 2017, so we must begin!
