LOOKING AHEAD

Yard Sale
The Church Council has decided that it would not be wise at the present time to hold our spring yard sale. We will revist

the pandemic situation in the summer to determine if we can go ahead with the fall yard sale.

 

 

Chinese Auction    
The basket and large item auction has been delayed until the beginning of  2022. Hopefully by then we will be back to pretty close to "normal".

 

Please note: Kathy can still use baskets and items for baskets, especially things men would like as well as toddlers and older children. We have purchased quite a few larger prizes so if you would care to donate toward them or toward smaller items that Kathy could purchase as fillers, that would be great. Please see Kathy about that or call her at 631-901-4941. Once again, search your house and look for new items that you do not want and re-gift them to the Auction. Most of us have things we have received that we do not use or do not care for. Don’t feel guilty! It would be going to a good cause. Better that than sitting on a shelf in a cupboard or closet. Items can be brought to church on a Sunday and left in the kitchen.

 

Thrift Shop
We can hardly wait to get the thrift shop open! Some of us have bags of goodies stored in our homes for the shop. We would love to get rid of them! Right now we are anticipating opening the shop on June 10. Note change of date. Our hours would be Thursday and Saturday from 9-3 for staff. We will be open from 10-3 for customers. Volunteers usually work mornings or afternoons. In some cases both.

 

We are looking for two or three more volunteers to help on Saturday morning or aftrnoon. Please help us out. call Jane

@ 631-727-3152.

 

 

CHILDREN’S CHURCH

Summer and warm weather is fast approaching. As the outdoors opens up and vaccines become even more prevalent, we hope to enjoy our summer outdoor children’s programs.
We’ll have games, snacks, drinks, crafts and Christian education for our youth outdoors. The playground area will be equipped with picnic tables, teachers and fun for all children

Please encourage any children you know of to attend. We will look forward to beginning this as soon as Spring/Summer weather begins to show its face.

If you choose to donate snacks for our program, please be advised that we take allergies into consideration. Potato chips and Cheetos are great. Pretzels need to be gluten free. Juice drinks and water bottles really work well. These donations can all be left in the kitchen.

Thank you and Blessings always, Kathy
