lanier cookbooks

In connection with our 65th Anniversary, we have decided to print another cookbook for August 2022. Please submit recipes you would like to be included by our deadline of June 30. Your recipes will be indexed under your name so it is a good way to preserve family recipes. They must be legibly hand written or typed. One recipe to a page with recipe title, list of ingredients, complete directions, and your name. You may submit more than one recipe. Anyone associated with Lanier Baptist Church, present or past, may submit recipes. Please help us get the word out as we need at least 300 recipes.

Call the church office at 225-355-5605 or click on picture of Recipes & Memories to ask questions or to submit your recipe online today.   

You may also mail them to the church, hand deliver them to the office or to Charlotte Melius or e-mail them to Get your recipes in as soon as possible. 

  • Recipes & Memories - Out of Print

    This cookbook was printed in conjunction with our 50th Anniversary.  The book details the history of our church from 1957 to 2007--the year it was printed.  This is definitely a book you want to have in your library to reflect upon memories of the church and its members.

  • Lanier's Silver Anniversary Cookbook - Out of Print

    This book was dedicated to  the memory of Lonnie H. Bearry.  The purpose of the cookbook project was to earn money to provide a time of spiritual enrichment for the young people of Lanier.  Bearry provided untiring and unselfish service to the Lord and made a lasting impression on the youth of the church.

  • Lanier's Recipe Revelation - Out of Print

    This cookbook was sponsored by The Youth Choir.  The following explanation is found in the pages of the cookbook:  "A cookbook by definition is a book of directions and recipes for cooking. This cookbook goes a step past this definition because of the contributors who shared their recipes for publication within the covers. While this book contains many different recipes,  the common thread is that each recipe represents an expression of love."
