FALL FESTIVAL QUILT EXHIBIT inside the church, in the sanctuary. To make the exhibit successful, we need quilts to show. Quilts will be accepted on Friday, Sept. 22 and may be picked up after the Festival is over. While historic quilts are always desirable, newer human-made quilts (not commercially made) are also wanted. We would be happy to have more than one quilt per person! To get an idea of how many quilts will be shown, please let us know about your quilts. Complete the information flier (copies at the back of the church) to indicate what you’re bringing. Please get all information to Pastor Marcia Meabon by September 10.
WEBSTER FALL FESTIVAL is Saturday, September 23 from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. There will not be a rummage sale this year, instead there will be an auction at 10:00 a.m. If you have an item valued at $25+ to donate please text or email a photo of your item to 734-368-1736 or email@example.com.
