December 8, 2018 - our annual Ladies’ Christmas Tea with silent & live auction was a great success!! Terri White was our guest speaker, administrator of Island Community School, who spoke about being a light to others. Thrivent Action Team funding went towards the food which came from both Publix and The Trading Post. The silent auction had many donated wonderful baskets, artwork, and gift certificates. The live purse auction and Rice & Beans sponsor portion was very successful, mainly due to the auctioneer duties of Jack Munro. The Rice & Beans sponsorship raised $3350.00 alone. Approximately $4000. was also raised to go towards our local outreach program and continued assistance with world missions. Marcia Pavey works all year getting the items together and planning this event. Thanks to all who helped during the many weeks of preparation and set up, those who came and supported the event and those who donated to the cause. Every penny raised will help another person.
Please join us for our candlelight Christmas Eve Service beginning at 6:00pm on December 24th. All are welcome to come and worship the birth of our Savior with the beauty of candlelight and surrounded by our incredible stained glass images.
