Annual Flea Market & Bake Sale
Saturday, OCT. 1
Have YOU ever wondered how your donations to the Flea Market & Bake Sale help the church? In addition to varying events & ministries within the church, the profits have provided funding for many tangible church needs. To list a few:
•Tables & movable screen dividers in the CAC.
•Freezer, dishes & glasses, commercial mixer in the kitchen.
•Tile flooring, lights & furniture in the connector.
•Mural & tile entry flooring in the Day Care area.
•Major contribution to roof repairs.
Guided by the grace of God & the hard work & planning of many UMW members & volunteer helpers, our fundraisers have always been successful. Please join in helping this effort by donating your gently used “treasures”, baked goods, & time in the preparation work prior to the sale. Your generosity & help is always GREATLY appreciated!
Donation items will be accepted Sept. 26 - 30 from 9:00-2:00 in the CAC.

World Communion October 2nd
Special Sundays are designated Sundays throughout the year that provide opportunities for giving. These special offerings are earmarked and support designated ministries.
On these Sundays, we empower our congregations to give toward causes and organizations that promote sustainable life change.
These offerings help offer refuge in times of disaster, promote peace and justice, provide scholarships, reach out to the community, teach skills to encourage self-sufficiency and share the love of Jesus Christ with God’s people everywhere.
Special Shout out to Nate Lowe
Thank you, Jesus, for this wonderful man. He preaches, sings in the choir, handles all the tech work, and is a S-ALT (Build Team) leader.
