Be a Cookie Baker
We may need up to 5,000 dozen cookies for a typical Kairos weekend. Do the math... that's 60,000 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. Your loving sacrifice will provide "bread" that shines the Light of God's Grace into the darkest corners of a prison unit. May God bless you for the gift of baking! Different institutions have different rules concerning cookies, but if they allow cookies, you can guarantee that they'll allow chocolate chip! Check with your local Kairos community representative for details.
Cookie Guidelines
Cookie Preparation
The types of cookies that are generally acceptable are: Oatmeal, Peanut Butter, Molasses, Chocolate Chip, Ginger and Sugar. Check with your Kairos Community for specifics on the type of cookies that are allowed.

Cookies should be between 2 inches and 2-1/2 inches in diameter and not more than 1/2
inch thick.  It is very important not to use icing, sugar or any other type of coating on the outside of the
cookie. Do not add any kind of fruit or nuts to the cookies.


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 sheets and bake them.
Ask God to use your cookies as a source of His love to shine on the prisoners and staff on
the Kairos weekend.

Pray that each cookie brings the inmate, 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 thoroughly cooled cookies in a quart sized Zip Lock bag, a dozen cookies to a bag.
Label each bag with the cookie type inside. Freeze all cookies if not using within 3 days.

Getting the Cookies to the Prison
If you are not working on the team, please deliver the cookies to a team member before
the start of the weekend, so they can take them to the prison.
