Cookies, Cookies, Cookie!

Wow, it was a fun party on Tuesday night at the Christmas party for the United Community Centers’ ACT III teens given by the CTC UMW at the Poly Center.  A big thanks goes to all the women who came to celebrate with us and those who sent cookies.  I mean lots of cookies!! The Acton UMW came in a bus filled with women and cookies.  Together with cookies brought by the conference officers and their friends, we had a ton of cookies! But the cookies were saved to the end, so first we enjoyed a supper of pizza, wings, and salad.  Then we played our “traditional” Fruit Basket circle game with lots of laughs and smiles.  Next we got to work on a variety of crafts.  The Acton women taught them how to make duct tape and parachute bracelets.  The youth had fun with a wide variety on crafts.  Finally, it was time for the “Cookie Walk”!  Each youth got a gallon bag and walked around the table filling a bag.  I talked to one girl who was excited about sharing her cookies at school the next day.  I hope they lasted that long! This was a very SWEET way for the UMW to show our love for these youth.  Great job Acton UMW and all who came!!

We’ve been doing this party for four years now and it’s become part of my Advent celebration.  Being with these neat teens is an important way I prepare for the coming of the Christ. I give thanks for the gift of all who helped with the party.  I give thanks for the gift of the ACT III program at UCC- the teens and their leaders. 

Let’s continue to find ways to connect with UCC.  Remember the Mission Sparks you are doing in your district to support these community centers and please join me in praying for this ministry.
