The Episcopal Church Women have been working hard to prepare for this year’s Bazaar, coming up November 5 from 9 am to 3 pm.
Featuring gift baskets, Christmas decorations and gift items, soup lunch, Silent Auction items, healthy potted plants, and our ever-popular baked goodies.
Proceeds go not only toward Inreach (i.e. kitchen supplies, fellowship, Christmas Inreach, clergy discretionary fund), but also Outreach into our community (i.e. local schools, Helping Hands, FISH, Linn-Benton Food Share, Safe Haven, Youth Shelter).
Please help us to raise funds toward these important contributions!
