Children's Ministry Council

Three years ago, Kris Reed was hired as the Children's Ministry Director at our church. She has done marvelously!! What an encourager she has been and the children's ministry has grown and flourished under her direction.

God is leading Kris in a new direction; to work alongside her husband with the Awana ministries. Last night she invited the Children Ministry Council over to her house for one last meeting. And she fixed a delicious meal for us - china and all!

Roasted pork tenderloin, spinach salad, wild rice casserole...

and this delicious dessert - Cherry Berries on a Cloud.
Becky Khosravipour said it was her new favorite dessert. "Light - doesn't feel like you sinned too much."
Kris shared the recipe:

Cherry Berries on a Cloud (Taste of Home 1998)

6 egg whites
½ tsp. cream of tartar
¼ tsp. salt
1-3/4 c. sugar
6 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 c. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups whipping cream, whipped
2 cups miniature marshmallows
1 can (21 oz) cherry pie filling
2 c. sliced fresh strawberries
1 tsp. lemon juice

In a mixing bowl, beat egg whites, cream of tartar and salt until foamy. Gradually add the sugar, beating on high until stiff peaks form (do not underbeat). Spread evenly in a greased 13 X 9 X 2 baking pan. Bake at 275 for 1 hr.; turn off (do not open door). Let cool in oven overnight or for at least 12 hours. Beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth; gently fold in cream and marshmallows. Spread over meringue. Chill for 4 hours. Cut into 16 pieces. Combine topping ingredients; spoon ¼ cup over each serving. Yield: 16 svgs.

We will dearly miss you, Kris. God has provided Becca Adamson as the new director and we look forward to her leadership. (Incidently, she was our children's favorite babysitter when she was a teenager! And our daughter, Mindy, was a flower girl at her wedding!)

You are too sweet, Debby. We will have to do it again but with no meeting. I have loved working with all of you. You have been a tremendous blessing to me.
