“All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty.”

 ~Proverbs 14:23

The 2016 Holiday Bazaar is fast approaching! It needs the help of many people to be successful. Below are some ways you could help:

Needed: items to sell. Any well-made craft would be welcome. Do you work with wood? with pottery? with fabric? with yarn? with paper? with metal? 

If you don’t feel ‘crafty,’ we will be having some sessions where folks help assemble things (mug cake mixes, snowman hot chocolate, wrapped candies, etc.) These sessions will be Oct. 5, 12, 19, 26 at 10 am in the fellowship hall downstairs. Contact Kim Luker (360.808.7900) for details.

  • Do you have a green thumb and can and like to start houseplants? We sell lots of those.
  • Would you help with set-up on Thursday, Nov. 3? 
  • Would you work a three-hour session on either Friday, Nov. 4 or Saturday, Nov.5? Sign up sheet will be out on Sunday, Oct. 16. 
  • Do you like to bake? We sell lots of baked goods that folks donate. We look forward to candies, cookies, tea breads, yeast breads, jams and jellies, fruit pies, and anything else that looks delicious. 

More details will be coming in the bulletin on Sunday, Oct. 9 so you can plan your baking.

We appreciate all the help we receive each year from the congregation. We couldn’t do it without you! We also appreciate all the items you donate or purchase. It truly takes the whole congregation to make this a success. Funds raised last year went 25% each to TAFY (The Answer For Youth, a local outreach), to Young Life (another outreach), to the Furnace Fund to repay the costs of the new furnace installed in 2011, and to the Kitchen Fund to make improvements or repairs to church kitchens or to purchase new kitchen equipment.

If you have questions about any of this, please contact Robin Sweeney at jairosweeney@mac.com or at 360.461.2427.
