About Kairos Cookies
Homemade cookies are a tangible expression of Christian love and an indication of God’s concern for a group of people who seldom encounter either in the course of their daily lives.
 
Cookie Preparation The types of cookies that are preferred by the prisoners are chocolate chip, peanut butter and sugar cookies |  without nuts.
 
The Key Ingredient: Prayer Pray individually or as a family over the ingredients before and during mixing.  Pray over the cookies as you drop them onto the cookie sheet to bake them.  Ask God to use your cookies as a source of His love to shine on the prisoners and staff of the Kairos Weekend.  Pray that each cookie brings the prisoner, Officer or Warden who eats it closer to God.  We want every person to become part of the Family of God.
 
 
Packing the Cookies Bag the “cooled” cookies in Zip Lock bags.  It is OK to bake and freeze your cookies.
