Local Church Garage Sale

Local Church Garage Sale

A local church placed a variety of items on sale on Saturday in hopes to expand its sanctuary.

The Sharon Avenue Free Methodist Church had an indoor garage sale on Friday and Saturday. Church members say that this is one step in securing the money they need for the expanding renovation.

"It’s $80,000, that’s what our estimate is, and we’ve got a long way to go yet," said Fundraising Coodinator, Belle Shaw.

The already handicap accesible church comfortably holds 100 people and the congregation average is already at 109 people. With the renovations they hope to be able to fit double that number in the building. Members of the church are always welcoming new ideas to raise the funds.

" We are also looking at other options to see what we can do for fundraisers. We’ve already had a spaghetti dinner and a build your own taco bar," said Shaw.

If you missed this rummage sale they will have another one near the end of summer. If you want to help the church in any from you can give them a call at 740-453-2417.
