7th Annual Church Yard Sale - May 6, 2017

Thank you to all who helped out at our 7th annual Yard/Craft Sale on Saturday, May 6th  and/or donated items to sell.  We had 34 vendors who rented tables, and Bethany had 18 tables full of donated items.   $2,950 was raised and will be used to offset the costs of providing various Outreach projects not provided for in our Benevolence budget.   We also continue to attract  visitors to our Church from this event, so please be sure to welcome any "new faces" you see at our Sunday service.  Thank you for your support.

Sincerely, Jean Wilson
