Fall 2020 Rummage Sale

Word is out – the basement rummage room is overflowing with great stuff and we desperately need to have a sale!  Because we have so much, and because of Covid, this fall’s sale is going to look a lot different!

First off, it will be a 2 week event!  You heard that right!  We have so much it will take 2 weeks to sell it all.  Here is the schedule:

  • Sunday, October 11 – Carry items from the rummage room to the dining room after church
  • Monday, Oct. 12 and Tuesday, Oct. 13 – Mark items and place on tables
  • Thursday, Oct. 15 and Friday, Oct. 16 – Sale days, 9am – 5pm
  • Saturday, Oct. 17 – $1 bag sale, 9am – 11am
  • Sunday, Oct. 18 – Bring out the remaining items from the rummage room after church
  • Monday, Oct. 19 and Tuesday, Oct. 20 – Mark the remaining items
  • Thursday, Oct. 22 and Friday, Oct. 23 – Sale days, 9am – 5pm
  • Saturday, Oct. 24 – $1 bag sale, 9am – 11am, followed by CLEAN UP!

Everyone (workers and buyers) will be expected to wear a mask.  Workers may wear rubber gloves.  The number of people allowed in the dining room at any one time will be limited to Covid restrictive counts.  Everyone will enter by the front door of the church, descend to the dining room, and exit through the kitchen to the Scout Room, where purchases will be bagged and paid for.  Everyone will then exit through the Scout Room door.

Sign-up sheets to help will soon be posted in the main hallway.  However, because of the length of the sale, people’s concerns about working, and the great need for workers, BE PREPARED FOR A PHONE CALL ASKING FOR HELP!!  Rummage sales bring in the majority of money that we use for our missions.  We need everyone’s assistance.  This is a non-gender specific event, so MEN, please help!


UMW Meetings:  There were no UMW meeting in January and February.  Regular monthly UMW meetings resumed on Thursday, March 12, 2020, at 10:00 a.m. in the church lounge. These meetings will be held the second Thursday of each month at 10:00am in the lounge.  (Meetings may be cancelled due to COVID).  Please join us for prayer, fellowship, and mission purpose.

The women in this fellowship meet to develop a deeper connection to Christ and to embody the work of the Lord through raising funds that find their way to help the people of God, here in our community and beyond the borders of Newark. You are most welcome to join us.


(On hold due to COVID-19)

April 11-13, 2019 Rummage Sale:  A heartfelt thanks to all those who helped with the Rummage Sale, and to our many wonderful customers.  The sale was a great success, even with the limited parking due to ongoing Main Street Construction.
