Saturday Morning Group Plans Busy December

Annual Christmas Bazaar

Saturday December 13,

9 am – 1 pm

 

The Congregational Church Christmas Bazaar will be held on Saturday, December 13 from 9 am to 1 pm. The event includes a bake sale, local artisan booths, and Grandma’s Attic, a sale of gently used gift items. A soup and dessert lunch will be served from 11 – 1. A free will offering will be accepted, and profits will go to Global Mission Child Support, and other projects of the Saturday Morning Gathering. The soup lunch is a great time for a leisurely meal and conversation, or a quick lunch break. Bring friends!

LOCAL ARTISAN BOOTHS AND GRANDMAS’ ATTIC

The 2014 Christmas Bazaar will have pottery, baskets, artwork, hand sewn crafts including onesies, children’s activities and ornaments. Grandma’s attic will feature a collection of dolls and Christmas books, along with many other items.

 

BAKE SALE ITEMS AND DESSERTS NEEDED FOR BAZAAR

If you can provide a dessert for the lunch or goods for the bake sale (cookies, breads, pies, cake, candy, snacks, etc.) please bring them to the church. Bake sale items are needed by 8:30 am the day of the sale and lunch desserts are needed by 10:30 am.  Set up work will be done at 10 am Friday, December 12, and help is always welcome.   

ANNIVERSARY LUNCH: In celebration of the church’s 181st Anniversary, the congregation is invited to gather for a soup and dessert lunch following worship on December 14th. Sack lunch friends are invited to join in the meal.

Advent Wednesday

Get-Togethers

   Please join us for casual, interactive, inter-generational get-togethers this Advent. We will gather on Wednesdays at 5:30 for a simple meal, conversation and an activity that explores a theme that comes up during Advent, that time of waiting for the birth of Jesus and the Reign of God. On December 3, we will make Christmas ornaments that reflect a theme of time. On December 10, we will make a Christmas decoration, using advertisements to comprise the picture of Mary, Joseph and infant Jesus. On December 17, we will do a mini-Posada, a “no room at the inn” tradition of Latin America . Please join us. If you want to come for the meal and continue in conversation rather than engage the project, that is fine. We hope to have a low-key gathering that deepens community and offers something for all ages and people. See you on Wednesdays!
