The Steadfast Class will be having their annual picnic at Jill Russom’s house (Third St.) on Wednesday, June 13th starting with a social hour at 5:00 pm followed by a pot luck supper at 6:00 pm. A special invitation is extended to all the women of the church. Ask Jill for directions, or contact Carol Hawley if you would like a ride.
It’s that time of year again for one of our most fun fundraisers – The Service Auction. It will be held on July 22nd following worship at the Batchellerville Church. Please start thinking about planning a party or making a theme basket, a meal to share, homemade offerings, or any other item or service. Maureen Sweet is excited to organize the event this year. If you have a service you want to offer, please pick up a 3×5 card from Maureen. Thanks in advance for your contributions!
We will again be running a luncheon on Saturday of Garage Sale weekend, May 5th. As in the past we need donations of soups, bread, and baked goods. Please see Carol Hawley to let her know what you can make or how you can help. Also plan to come for lunch, being served from 10:00am until the food runs out, to support your church.
Our 2018 garage sale is less than a month away. It will be held on Friday, May 4th starting around noon and continue on Saturday, May 5th starting at 8:30 until we close. If you are interested in participating by getting rid of some of your “surplus”, please let either Carolyn Learch or Peg Schutze know ASAP. We will be setting up canopies and will have tables to loan out. Please let us know if you will need a table. As we have done the last couple of years, you will need to do your own pricing and setting up of your booth.
Not to fear. Spring is near. That means that in a blink of an eye it will be time for our Annual Garage Sale. This year the dates are Friday, May 4 & Saturday, May 5th. We will continue with our modified sale format. Stay tuned for updates as the time draws near. For more information you may contact either Peg Schutze or Carolyn Learch. Let’s hope this ugly winter will turn into a perfect spring.
Shrove Tuesday and our annual Pancake Supper is getting close. Save up your appetites and come fill up before the start of Lent. To be held in the Fellowship hall on Feb. 13th starting at 5:00pm. Donations appreciated.
The Annual Meeting is scheduled for January 28th after worship.
After worship and before the meeting, steadfast likes to provide a brunch for the congregation. We are asking for somme extra help with the menu, so if you could bring something please let Carol Hawley know. She will be in the kitchen during coffee hour today (Jan 14th) and will appreciate any offers.
Reminder that the Thanksgiving Service is Tuesday, November 21st at 7:00pm at the Methodist Church.
Hanging of the greens will be Thursday November 30th at 4:30pm. A potluck dinner will follow, so we ask everyone who will be joining us either for the decorating/dinner or just for the dinner to bring a dish to share. Please let Barb Sperry know if you will be at the dinner so she can plan accordingly, and let Peg know if you will help with the decorating. This is a time for fellowship and to begin celebration and joy of the Christmas season. We hope many of you will join us.
Once again, the church will be a Trick-or-Treat Warming Station and rest stop for those out having fun. The warming station will be open from 5:00pm to 7:00pm on Oct. 31st.
