The Centro De Paz ministry is sponsoring an Outdoor Rummage Sale on Saturday, December 12!
Saturday, December 12 was a BUSY and JOYFUL day on the Prince of Peace campus! The rummage sale began at 8:00 am and over 200 hundred visitors shopped the products you generously donated. Special thanks go to our staff, Pastor Green, Eric Gerken, and Jon Wiegand, and, especially Deaconess Ligia and Pastor Borges who are the leaders of the Centro de Paz Task Force! They all put in a full day working beside members from all three worship services, it was truly a unified congregational effort. It was a special joy to watch our youth, many of them bilingual, provide extra help to shoppers. Thanks to Eric Gerken, Director of Youth and Family ministry, for recruiting them! So many volunteers came early and stayed late to provide great customer service and a COVID safe shopping experience. Thanks to your donated items, we were able to raise over $2,200 for the Centro de Paz Mission! We plan to hold more rummage sales in the future, but we will wait until God restores a safe environment.
While the rummage sale was going on, we gave out the gifts from the Angel Tree project to 60 families, 135 children! There is indeed “So much stuff” to be thankful for.
