Love garage sales? Us too! We host one every year, but everything is FREE! We bring in our gently used treasures, sort them, tag the clothes by size, organize, and set it all up. (Of course, this all takes waaay more than a day to accomplish). On Blessing Day, we open our doors to the public, and let the shopping begin! It takes a lot of organizing, and set up, but we think of it as a labor of love. It's wonderful to see the joy on peoples' faces as they find new treasures of their own to take home and enjoy. Any leftover goodies are donated to Teen Challenge Thrift Store.
Our coffee bar is open at 9 am every Sunday (the 4th Sunday we add donuts). We enjoy a cup o'joe and some fellowship. As Pastor says, "You can really get to know someone when there's opportunity to spill your coffee on them." He's joking, of course, but we look forward to this precious time before church service. Everything is provided free of charge, but donations are gratefully accepted.
How to Study the Bible Classes
Usually at least once per year we provide classes on how to study the Bible. We try to break sessions up into 2 or 3 consecutive Saturdays (and then we can have some lunch and fellowship, too)! Topics include: how to look up a Scripture, the differences in translations and paraphrases, different types of Bibles, how to use an Interlinear Bible, how to use a Concordance, how to find Greek/Hebrew meanings, the pros and cons of commentaries, and how to use Bible software. Basically, we demonstrate and practice using many available tools so we can dig deeper and STUDY the Bible. Come join us - we even have prizes!
