How to Create a Church Cookbook

Creating your Church cookbook is easy, you need to encourage as many of your congregation to participate in your church fundraiser, once you have explained your project church members will be eager to help and supply recipes, if your organisation publishes a newsletter you could place a small advertisement, publicising your fundraising project and asking for suitable recipes.

When organising your cookbook, you need to set a deadline for submitting recipes, you want to give people plenty of time for submitting recipes, however don’t give so much time that people will forget about your project.
