New Bible Study!  Is there actually more to life than accumulating health, wealth & prosperity?

Come out and stock up on homemade crafts for Christmas gifts and decorations; home-baked cakes, pies & desserts for your holiday meals (or just your random Tuesday sweet-tooth); and homemade canned goods (like Brunswick stew) to make meal prep a breeze during the busy holiday season. Bakers can pick up cake and pie boxes in the church office.  Please contact Doris Click at dlclick@nc.rr.com if you have any questions or if you are planning to create something to sell in the Bazaar.
