Our Barter Sale is held annually on one of the first 3 Saturdays in May. The sale in 2020 would have been our 14th annual sale but was not held due to the Covid-19 concerns. We look forward to resuming this tradition when the church reopens after the pandemic. This is a fun event where all donated items are free to our guests. All we ask is that each guest leaving with treasures writes a good deed that they pledge to do for someone else. This promise is written on a card and all the pledges are blessed the following day at the worship service. Only God knows how many people will be blessed by all the good deeds.
Christ Church is well known for having excellent pasties and many buyers freeze their pasties for eating later in the fall at hunting camp. We had our 26th annual Pasty Sale in 2019. As with the Barter Sale, we hope to resume this fun fundraiser when the church reopens. The pasty sale was started by the men’s group in 1993. The tradition is carried on with almost all in the congregation participating in the impressive production. It has become somewhat of an ecumenical production with members of the Spirit of Christ, the Healer community offering many helping hands. All proceeds go to local non-profit agencies.
We have had an annual Silent Auction since 2006. Members donate new or gently used items, some handmade treasures can be found. Members bid against each other to ultimately own their favorite items. Proceeds currently go to funding a Camp Scholarship fund so children from Christ Church who wish to attend Episcopal Church Camp can receive financial assistance as needed.
