COOKIE BAKE!!!! — Cookie Bake will start at 9 am on Friday and run until late Friday night. There will be a LOCK-IN Friday night, when you will be able to spend the night at the Foundation. If you want to participate in the lock-in, make sure you get to the Foundation by midnight, because we’ll be locking the doors then!

** Also just a reminder: You are welcome to come for any or all of Cookie Bake! You don’t have to be going on the Spring Break Mission Trip to participate! In fact, we want you to come to Cookie Bake if you aren’t going on Spring Break! It takes a lot of helping hands to pull off baking over 700 dozen cookies, and it’s a lot of FUN! **

Saturday, February 12

COOKIE BAKE!!!! — We’ll start again early Saturday morning and bake all day until late Saturday night. Just an FYI: The editor (Neill Caldwell) of the Advocate, a United Methodist magazine, will be at cookie bake between 10-11 am Saturday morning to take pictures and get more information about this event! This is a great way for everyone in the Virginia Conference to learn more about the Wesley Foundation and what we do, so I hope you all will help us make Neill feel welcome at Wesley!
