Community Members Attend Cooking Class

On the icy evening of Thursday, Jan. 25, the Petersburg Church held a cooking class focusing on grains, led out by church member Deloris Herbrandson. Eleven people came; four were visitors from the community who had heard announcements on the radio or had seen a flier about it.

Herbrandson showed how to make a nutritious and wholesome bread with whole-grain flours and some white flour. Class members were able to work the dough and place it into small baking pans. The class also included a demonstration on making different types of granola and a baked oatmeal dish. Participants were offered samples to try at the class or take home.

Attendees were eager to come back for another class. "We are planning to hold a health-related event like this once a month," said Mark Kubo, Petersburg Church pastor. We hope events like these will bring community members to our church so we can connect and get better acquainted.
