Rummage Sale (During Covered Bridge Festival)
Once again, this year the “garage sale” was held in the Fellowship Hall during the Covered Bridge Festival. Items were donated over the weeks preceding the CBF. Those items had to be sorted and tagged prior to the sale. There were 2 long weeks of long days during the setup and sale. Some of the Celebrate Recovery folks came in and worked the sale.
We also offer a hospitality center during the Rummage Sale. Water, coffee, and cookies are given to guests who come in during the Covered Bridge Festival. The church serves as a rest and recuperation area for many people. We have many people who volunteer their time providing fellowship and hospitality.
A total of $1175 was raised in 2021 and the money was split between Celebrate Recovery and other missions of the church. It was one of our best years. Thanks to all who helped.
