ELW prepares for Craft Sale!

Our old church is now officially for sale. While it is sad to see a "For Sale" sign on a church, it is also a sign that our new church is near completion. If anyone is interested in buying the old building, contact Tony at 306-867-8034.

The church council is urging all members to consider automatic debit as a way to donate to the building fund. Treasurer, Shawn, doesn't want to lose too much hair over worrying about making payments! We would really like to pay it off in 13 years to save on interest.
Donations are also being accepted for our chair fund to help pay for the pew chairs which should be arriving about mid December.

Building our new church has not slowed down activity in the old church. A number of ladies have been busy getting ready for our annual craft sale. Isabel made and donated a quilt top for the ladies to put together and hand stitch.

Some of the ladies who hand stitched the quilt included Carrie, Betty, Byrdie and Isabel.

This quilt will be one of the items auctioned off at our Craft and Bake Sale on November 17 at the Heritage Center.

Bake Sale 1:00 pm
Silent Auction 1:00 - 2:30 pm
Live Auction 2:30 pm
Coffee and Goodies will be served
Bring your friends for a good opportunity to shop for Christmas!

Craft items for the silent and live auctions, and Baking for the sale will be accepted from 10 am and on.

Coffee time is important for us all. Pr. Ron came to join us and found himself recruited into preparing and cleaning up after coffee! (We were too busy stitching!)

Maureen and Lila sewed on buttons while others quilted.

Doreen and Jean hand tied another quilt for the auction.

Anne, Isabel and Byrdie frantically stitch while Carrie "cracks the whip".

Byrdie, Isabel, Carrie and Lona working hard!
