Church cookie walk supports ministry

The annual Messiah Lutheran Cookie Walk, featuring homemade holiday cookies, will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. or until sold out Dec. 14 at the church, 1200 S. Waggoneer Road, Reynoldsburg.

Customers can select a medium box for $12 or a large box for $20, then choose their own cookies.

The Cookie Walk will benefit Joseph's Coat, a free clothing and furniture outreach program started at Messiah Lutheran Church more than nine years ago and now includes volunteers and support from St. Pius X Catholic Church and Parkview Presbyterian Church, as well as Messiah Lutheran.

The ministry, located at 240 Outerbelt Drive, serves an average of 175 families each week. To provide for this growing need, donations of good clothing, household goods and furniture is critical.

The open hours for shopping as well as donations are 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesdays, 9 a.m. to noon Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Trucks are available to pick up large furniture donations. For more information call 614-863-1371.
