Hundreds of members of that denomination, now known as the Christian Methodist Episcopal Church, gathered at the Baltimore Convention Center Friday to consecrate the 61st, 62nd and 63rd bishops in its history. A two-hour service marked the end of the historically black denomination's weeklong general conference, a convention members hold every four years to choose new leaders and weigh doctrinal changes.

More than 22 years ago, Leona Smith came to her church family at Mt. Nebo United Methodist Church in Delta, Pa., to ask the congregation to join with her in providing cookies for the York County Prison at Christmastime. Those choosing to participate in the Cookie Project would bake cookies and bring them into church by a certain day. About seven years ago, Sandy Thacker designated a day in December for anyone who wanted to join her at church to bake cookies for the Jail Ministry. Over the years, Thacker has developed the process into having anyone make the cookie recipe at home and then bring the mixture into church with the instructions for her crew to bake the cookies.
