UMW Cookbook

Bountiful Blessings

As part of the First United Methodist Church 2019 Fall Bazaar, the United Methodist Women (UMW) is creating a custom cookbook featuring favorite recipes from current and former church families and friends. These cookbooks will be professionally published by Morris Press Cookbooks, the Nation’s Number One Cookbook Publisher, and are sure to be a treasured keepsake. Proceeds from the sale of the cookbook will combine with other Bazaar funds and be used to support the UMW’s local Missions.
