Arabic Sweets Sale

In addition to being a lovely addition to your Holiday table, these sweets make wonderful gifts!  All of the delicious Arabic sweets that we offer for sale are prepared using traditional recipes.  We use only the best and freshest ingredients and take the greatest care to create "treats" that are not only a joy to taste but also beautiful to look at.

Place your order* in person at the Sweets Table in the Church Hall on Sundays from now until the 10/31 deadline.  Or order by mail by following the instructions below.

Sweets Pick-Up Days are Sat., Dec. 4 (3:30 – 5 pm) and Sun., Dec. 5 (noon – 1 pm).  For more information, contact Lani Kanakry at 703-200-6416 or

*Please be aware that, because of continuing uncertainties about Covid, we are limiting our sweets production this year and will have fewer items available for “post sales,” which are extra unordered boxes of sweets that may be available on Pick-Up Day.  If you wish to have any of your favorite Arabic Sweets for this Christmas season, we highly encourage you to order now as there may not be “post sales” boxes of what you would like if you wait until Pick-Up Day.  So, place your order soon!
