 2020 Bazaar Events

November 7th - Fall Bazaar

          The Bazaar Women have one fundraiser left this year, the Fall Bazaar.  The date is November 7th from 8:00 AM until 1:00 PM.  The event will be held outside on the front parking lot, weather permitting. In case of inclement weather, it will be held in the Family Life Center.


          The Bazaar is an “All Church Bazaar” sponsored by the Bazaar Committee.  We invite all to participate by bringing crafts and staying to help with the event.  All the proceeds from the bazaar will go back into doing church missions.

          This year the Bazaar may not be having anything on Sunday after church, so please support us on Saturday.


            This year, at the Fall Bazaar, we will not be serving lunch but feel free to bring a lunch if you are going to be helping all day.  You might get hungry 

December 31st - Open Date

What can I do to prepare for this flu season?


The timing of flu is very unpredictable and can vary from season to season. Flu activity most commonly peaks in the US between December and February.   However, flu season activity can begin as early as October and continue as late as May.



CDC recommends a yearly flu vaccine for everyone six months of age and older as the first and most important step in protecting against this serious disease. In addition to getting the flu vaccine, use everyday preventive actions such as: stay away from sick people, washing your hands frequently to reduce the spread of germs, and staying at home if you are sick to prevent the spread of the virus.




The CDC recommends getting the flu vaccine soon after it is available, preferably by October. Remember that it takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies to develop in the body and provide protection.


Loaves and Fishes





Every month, the dinner has a different theme with decorations that all coordinate! October was “1950s!” Teri Goldsberry “Pink Lady” and Olivia Bono helped serve 150 people at the meal.

“As you did it to one of the least of these ...”
            In his book God’s Politics, theologian Jim Wallis, who frequently speaks on matters of faith and society, tells of an old Pentecostal mentor of his named Mary Glover. He says he learned more about Jesus’ relationship with the poor from her than he did in seminary.
            For instance, Jim recounts, every time they were about to open the doors to a neighborhood food line in Washington, D.C., Mary prayed, “Lord, we know that you’ll be comin’ through this line today, so, Lord, help us treat you well.”
Every month, the dinner has a different theme with decorations that all coordinate!  One of the
themes was "Have a Ball" and Teri Goldsberry did just that!

RADA Cutlery
            Jane Bauer took on the RADA cutlery project on behalf of the United Methodist Women.   She now keeps the inventory and takes orders for sales.
            A number of UMW missions were helped from the sale of RADA cutlery and, along with donations to the church, earnings have totaled over $1500. Some of these earnings and donations went toward the purchase of new coffee makers, silverware and new greenery for the annual Hanging of the Greens during the 2014 Christmas season. In addition, donations were made to the building fund and Ladies Bazaar. The remaining earnings went towards many different needs including office equipment, the renovation of the parsonage’s air conditioning, a new office copier, new church carpet, nursery attendant’s salary as well as flood bucket supplies.
            This project is worthwhile endeavor and will continue to be a viable service with the support of the church and community.
