Saturday, December 10th from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. there will be a Craft
Fair and Book Sale in our church building here in West Laurel (on
Riding Stable Road). 100% of the proceeds from the table rentals and
the book sale will be sent to Tanzania to support our Deaf ministry
partnership there - which provides Tanzanian Sign Language training in
the villages, enables Deaf children to go to school, and dramatically
improves the life situation of Deaf people in one of the poorest parts
of that nation.
If you would like to donate books for the book
sale (books of any kind are welcome), you can drop them off any time
this week to the church (or email me privately at this address for pick
up). If the doors are open (and there are people in the building most
of the time), you can just put the books inside the front doors in the
vestibule. If you'd like a tax deductible receipt, we will be happy to
send you one.
We hope you will come and shop as well. If you
have a bent towards theology, we have cleaned out our church library
and will have a huge section of books on those topics.
(If you are a craft person and would like a table, email Annajoy Thompson at firstname.lastname@example.org.)
Thanks for reading!
