Armed Forces Bake-Off



On Sunday afternoon, December 17, 2017, HECC hosted for its first time the annual Armed Forces Bake-Off, a creation of the Rev. Rich Sanders and his wife, Rebekah.  Rich announced that “[o]ur annual event, the Armed Forces Bake-Off, brings our friends together to celebrate and acknowledge our men and women serving in the military who will be overseas during the holidays.   Every year, on the same day as the Army-Navy football game, we invite our friends and family to our home to bake goodies, package them and put the finishing touch in each box ‒ a homemade card.  We also pack several hundred gift bags to give to the military service members traveling through our airport during the holidays.” 


“Alas, we have outgrown our kitchen and need a larger space to accommodate all of the helping hands preparing and assembling the treats to be sent around the world. We want to continue our tradition [by using] . . . the HECC kitchen on Sunday, December 17th, 2017 from Noon to 4:00, with . . . a window of time before and after to set-up and clean-up.  St. Michael's Mission, the non-profit, tax-exempt ministry that Rebekah and I started in 2012, works to aid veterans who are in need of soul repair. We help by offering social service resources to them so they can rebuild their lives after re-entry into a world that often is unaware of the injury that war inflicts . . . their unseen wounds.  Many of the service men and women who will receive our packages, might later come to us in need of spiritual care.  We want to be able to offer support.” 




We hope that this year's Bake-Off will be the start of a rich tradition with Rich and Rebekah.
