Junior Camp “God Loves ME Inside Out”  Hills of Peace Campground

Chilliwack Garage Sale Success!

20170506_130705_thumb5

We had a great turnout for the Chilliwack garage sale this spring. Our congregation raised $3800 and change for World Accord, Chilliwack Supportive Housing, and Samish Island Campground. Many thanks to all who helped by baking, manning the kitchen, taking money, stocking the tables, carrying things for people and bringing goods from friends, family and neighbours. It took great team work to do all of this.

Big thanks to all who came and bought "stuff."  My junk…your treasure.

See you in October!
