COMING SOON – Saturday, November 18th, People’s Church 2017 Fine Art Sale & Holiday Bazaar

The Bazaar is a signature event for our church—where everyone—members, friends, and family members—can play a part in making it happen. We hope for over 700 people to come through our doors that day. The pasty making is nearing completion—thanks to many teams of choppers, assemblers, wrappers and their faithful leader and dough makers. Now is the time to bake, craft, sign up, and spread the word. The Bazaar supports our church budget, our programs and our service to others, and helps others get to know about us. Here are some of the many ways you can help.

Help promote the event! Flyers and postcards are available on the Bazaar sign-up table in the foyer. Please post at local venues/your workplace and distribute to people who might enjoy our event.  Post the link to our website page and our Facebook post, share the event post, and email the postcard to friends, work colleagues, neighbors, and family.  Personal invitations work best—invite people to join you for lunch in the café. If you live on a busy street or corner lot, we have some yard signs to put up Sunday, November 12th for the week before the Bazaar.

 Make things for Peoples Specialties. The foyer will be beautifully arranged to sell our homemade craft items, frozen entrees, breads, jams, baked goods, candies, vegan and gluten-free foods. Your generous contributions of homemade goods are needed. Simply drop off your contributions on Friday the 17th or early Saturday for pricing and arranging.

Gather gently used items to bring the week before the Bazaar for the White Elephant Rooms. Please search your closets, shelves and cabinets to find and clean those nice but unneeded household items, unused gifts, jewelry, holiday décor, toys and games for kids. No furniture, clothes, mold electronics or large athletic equipment accepted. Please bring your items to deliver after church on Sunday, November 12th in the downstairs lobby if you can. Or, drop-offs will also be accepted on Monday, Nov. 13th from 5:30-8pm,  Tuesday, Nov. 14th from 10am-2pm,  and Wednesday, Nov. 15th from 5:30-8pm.

Shop local! It’s hard to find a more interesting variety of gift items than you will find at our Bazaar. Bring your list and find the perfect choices right here from 30 local vendors.

Please don’t park at church – Take the Shuttle!
Park your car at our neighbor CenterPoint Church at 2345 10th St. (northwest from us) and ride in our church van with CONTINUOUS service all day, from 7:30 to 5:00 right to our front door. Drop your things off and then park at CenterPoint. If you must park at church, please leave spaces near the church for customers who will come and go during the day.

Sign up to work a shift at the Bazaar. Many people will be needed for various work shifts (generally, 2-hour shifts) on Saturday the 18th in each area (People’s Specialties, White Elephant, Café, Greeters, etc.) Please sign up at the Bazaar table in the foyer or sign in on the church website. We will need 20-30 people plus a few vacuum cleaners needed from 3 PM to 5PM to clean everything up and reset the church for Sunday.
Helpers of all ages are welcome!

Plan to eat in the café. The food is splendid! Morning snacks, a fabulous array of lunch items—including pasties—and homemade pies and more, will be available.

Help host our guests. Many people come to our Bazaar because they like the warm and friendly people. Please greet everyone and thank our vendors, too.

Questions? Please check with Chris in the church office or email Rochelle at habeck@chartermi.net.

 THANK YOU!!
