The church work day will be on November 22 from 9- 1.   Everybody is invited no job is too big or too small.  Bring something for the workers to eat if that works also.  We need to get the church ready for the Christmas decorations!

We would also like to invite everyone to see the Facebook page on Congregational Building preservation.  It is devoted to the things we have done to our building, and the big projects we have left to fix.  I invite anyone who has pictures or history of our church building to please get them to me so we can post all of the contributions  JaxUCC has done for the history of Jacksonville, and the changes that have been made over the years.

 Saturday Morning Group Moving

Toward the Bazaar

 Annual Christmas Bazaar – Sat. December 13, 9 am – 1 pm


The Saturday Morning Gathering is planning the Christmas Bazaar, which 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!

HELP NEEDED: The plans for the Bazaar are well underway; and several people have already signed up to help in various ways. However, items for the bake sale and desserts for the lunch are still needed. 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.  If you have questions, contact Sue at 370-1035.

The Saturday Morning Gathering meets as needed. Everyone is welcome to attend. The main focus of the group is friendship, local mission, global mission projects, and projects to improve and beautify our church building.
