(Oct. 16, 2020) The Atlantic United Methodist Church’s holiday bazaar will take place outdoors this year because of covid-19.
The 42nd annual event will be held on Saturday, Oct. 17 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the church parking lot on Fourth Street. Masks are required.
“We started in January making decorations,” said Brenda Wimperis. “[Because of covid-19] we had to re-invent our annual Christmas bazaar. We started planning in May an outdoor event.”
The outdoor mart will include Christmas Home Place decor, “Take and Make” holiday items, jewelry and baked goods.
Carryout lunch will be offered and includes church member Joe Cain’s vegetable beef soup, chicken salad sandwiches and assorted desserts.
All proceeds from the event, hosted by Martha Circle, benefit the charities and organizations supported by Atlantic United Methodist Church, which include its Friday soup kitchen, Diakonia, Believe in Tomorrow Children’s Foundation, the Cricket Center and Wreaths Across America.
“It all goes to local charities. They need it more than ever now,” Wimperis said. “Our goal is to continue to be able to support them.”
The church’s thrift shop will also be open.
Parking will be available in the lot across the street from the church. For more information, call the church at 410-289-7430.
Rain date is Saturday, Oct. 24.
