Church cooks up an idea to pay for organ

Church cooks up an idea to pay for organ



Date: 5 August, 2008

It is perhaps a sign of the times but the new cookbook compiled by members and friends of Trinity Reformed United Church of Christ will include recipes for "green" cleaning products that can be made at home.

"There will also be kid-friendly recipes and some vegetarian dishes," said Kelly Crenshaw, pastor of the historic church at 33 Potomac St., which dates to 1750.

The church is taking pre-orders for Kitchen Artistry II, which contains more than 700 recipes, including many of the original recipes from Kitchen Artistry - published in 1980 - as well as some additions. Each book sells for $20. Proceeds benefit the organ restoration fund.

Hopes are that cookbook sales will offset the $86,000 restoration project under way on the church's 1908 Moller Tracker organ, Crenshaw said.
