Church Bake Sale

  I am not sure or not if I have told you, but I am on the Mission Committee at our Church.  Today was our Annual Bake Sale.  The proceeds of the bake sale goes to fund various projects we under take for the year.  Our church also sponsors a cabin at a Bible Camp that is about 3 hours away from our small town.  This year our cabin is in desperate need of new mattresses, so we on the committee decided that this is where the proceeds with be applied.  We had 3 tables of goodies for the folks from our church to purchase.  I might add, this is not a big sale, we don't advertise it outside of our church and we ask for donations of bake goods for our parishioners.  The WONDERFUL people in our congregation helped us raise over $350.00 for the new mattresses.  This is a huge bust towards our goal of $1500.00.  It always amazes me how many people just say keep the change or wrote a $30 check for a $3 purchase and said keep the rest.  We had one lady apologize because all she had was $15 instead of the $20 she wanted to give.  We even had a number a people that just came back a gave us a twenty or ten and say I want to contribute.  Being in a small town, you know who can afford it and who can't and it seems like a lot of the time it is the ones that can't afford to give up that extra twenty but yet they always do.  We are so blessed to have them in our community, in our congregation and in our lives.  I Thank God for them everyday!!!  I Thank everyone who baked, who bought and who paid way to much for what they bought and who contributed.  You are truly a blessing! 

  Here are a few pictures of some of the goodies that were available today.

One of the best parts of the day, was my husband bought me a tray of gold brick bars that one of the older ladies in church make.  They are delicious and very labor intensive.  They are on the right hand side of the picture above.  I am a happy girl!
Love to all,     Sara
