‘Celebration Cookbook’

‘Celebration Cookbook’

    In 1862, when Civil War battles and skirmishes began erupting across Mississippi, a small group of Summit residents organized a new Baptist church. Within a few months, the membership of Summit Baptist Church reached 13.
    Renamed First Baptist in 1944, the church added and renovated facilities through the decades to accommodate a growing membership. In 2011, its worship attendance averaged 902 members.
    As First Baptist Church of Summit marked its 150th anniversary last year, members published a commemorative cookbook, which includes a history of their church. Proceeds from the sale of “Celebration Cookbook” help fund church ministries.
    The hardcover, loose-leaf cookbook presents 800 recipes ranging from traditional southern dishes to contemporary, ethnic-inspired cuisine. Contributors are church members, friends, former members, and past and present church staff.
    “Many of the recipes are family favorites passed down from generation to generation,” said Jerry Russell, cookbook committee chairman.
   To order, send $15 plus $6 S&H per book to Celebration Cookbook, c/o First Baptist Church, P.O. Box 100, Summit, MS 39666. Please include your phone number. For more information, call 601-276-2396.
