BLYTHEWOOD – To celebrate their church’s 30th anniversary this fall, the Fruitbearers’ women’s group of Cedar Creek Baptist Church are publishing a cookbook titled, ‘From Our House to Yours.’ The 400-page hardbound tome of recipes has been compiled from family, friends, church members and other good cooks in the community and will be available for purchase on Oct. 1.

“All of the proceeds will go toward two church projects, our missions work and a new sanctuary,” explained Donna Wright, one of several members of the Fruitbearers who packaged the book earlier this week to send to the printer.

Besides the collection of delicious recipes, the cookbook also details the history of the Cedar Creek congregation from October 1979, when 12 families held the inaugural service at the Cedar Creek Grange Hall. In 1983, the congregation built the current Cedar Creek Baptist Church facility on Cedar Creek Road and has since added an educational wing and fellowship hall.

The women published a previous cookbook in 2004 and it’s success prompted them to put out another one.

“We think everyone will like it,” Wright said enthusiastically as she thumbed through the colorful indexed, three-ring bound book. “It has so many good recipes from some of the best cooks around here.”

The cookbook costs $20 and will be available just in time for holiday gift giving. To order, mail a check to the church at 1920 Cedar Creek Road, Blythewood 29016 or call Wright at 735-8019 or Sandra Jones at 754-2571. Contact the church at 754-6230 or go to www.ccbcworship.org.
