Hidden somewhere in this collection of hand-made potholders is a duck. If you have trouble spotting it, you'll have another chance.
All of these will be on sale at our OPC Christmas Bazaar. You can examine them closely then. But only if you show up early. We don't expect these to remain unsold long!
On Saturday, October 15, OPC held another Christmas Bazaar workshop. And it turned out to be doubly productive.
The primary goal was to decorate the wooden Christmas trees Jennie Hill Robinson had made for the bazaar. She crafted them out of old pallets, both recycling and keeping bazaar costs low (can't get much lower than free).
While some of the participants worked on decorations, others started another project. This year we'll be offering magnolia wreaths. Saturday the second crew got the straw wreath forms wrapped in gold foil, ready for the magnolia leaves.
That will be a workshop for another day.
At the end of just a few hours, work was done. And more importantly, members of our church family spent time together talking, laughing, and doing God's work.
This past Sunday, folks who attended worship heard a great sermon by Wayne Bernardo. And afterwards, they enjoyed fun and fellowship.
The church hosted an old-fashioned Coffee Hour in the East Room -- just like the good old days.
Where you there? If not, know that we missed you.
And we're sorry we couldn't save you an Oreo or two. 😊
