Fall “Pop-Up” Market Set For November 12

October 6, 2016

The ACTS ladies group is spearheading the fall sale to be held at the church on November 12 from 9-2 pm.  We are calling it a Pop-Up Market.  We will have wonderful handmade crafts by church members as well as vendors, delicious baked goods, a Silent Auction, a food truck, plants and potted flowers.
Here is how you can assist us:
•    We are in need of clay pots.  Do you have any sitting unused in your basements or car ports?
•    Do you have any small side tables or small cabinets that we can repurpose? It is amazing what a coat of paint and some artistic vision can do!
•    Would you be willing to donate the cost of a flat or two of pansies?
•    Do you have home-canned jams, jellies, preserves or do you like to bake or freeze foods for easy meal prep?
And of course, we want your terrific gift baskets and other donations for the silent auction, as well as contributions of crafts. I know there are numerous crafty people out there. If your skill is baking or cooking, we’d love to offer your wares to our customers.
Contact Lynne Brock or Sandra Cox about crafts, Peggy Davis or BJ Satterwhite about the plants and pots, Amy Womble about silent auction contributions, and Tamara Ladich about baked good and other food contributions. Or contact Jean Porter about anything and she will get you to the right person.
Above all we need your prayers in this endeavor.
