Merrie Market! Saturday, December 3, 2016 9:00 am to 2:30 pm
Annual date: the first Saturday morning in December
This special holiday bazaar & cafe features a sale table of treasures from the attic, baked goods, gift baskets, crafts, used books, CD's, DVD's, children's toys, a silent auction, gingerbread house raffle, and the highpoint: spectacular holiday wreaths, created by Old Ship members. Not to mention the famous Old Ship chili and other goodies served in the cafe.
Merrie Market is one of Old Ship's most important fundraisers, but, along with that, it provides the pleasure of finding new friends and enjoying old ones through volunteering together. Click here for the many ways you can help out! Help us fill each table with goodies beforehand, and come volunteer & SHOP on a day filled with cheer!
TREASURES are collected all year round! Send your Treasures off to a new life! Drop them off in the Parish House during regular office hours or on Sunday.
Caroling!! on December 10, 2016
Our annual Carpool Christmas Caroling to some of our Old Ship members who have been ill or are otherwise limited in getting out, as well as to Harbor House Nursing Home, will be on Saturday, December 12. We will gather at the Parish House at 12:45 in order to leave at 1:00. Come if you've participated for years; come if this would be your first time. Whatever your spirits at 1:00 on December 12, your spirits will be lifted by 3:00 or 4:00. (And then you might wish to join in our annual Gingerbread House Making in the Fellowship Hall - details below...) Songbooks will be provided. All ages are welcome. Spirit way more important than perfect pitch!
