2019 Holiday Market!
Thank you, Holy Spirit!
The Holiday Market Committee thanks all of you who helped make this year's successful sale a reality. From your generous donations of items, talents, meals, muscles, and hours spent volunteering, we once again realized how blessed our church family is. We wish all of you could have seen the excited faces of the hundreds of people who came to shop on Friday and Saturday and heard their thank yous for Holy Spirit once again providing Missoula with this splendid event. Auction and raffle activities, too, added to the joy of this week. Let's now carry over that energy and spirit into the upcoming Bake Sale -- the final chapter in this year's Holiday Market events.
And thanks to our great group of volunteers!
A sale this successful couldn't happen without lots of volunteers and help. Thank you to all who helped with the Conga Line, arranging the tables, making lunches for the volunteers, helping with raffle ticket sales, donating raffle and silent auction staff. Special thanks to the office staff, especially Judy Parock who was always there to help with last minute printing requests and countless other tasks, including photographs for the church Facebook page tohelp market the Market. Thank you to those who provided music in the church on Friday during our open house, hosted by Bill Earhart. The number of volunteers for this event was amazing! We are so grateful and feel so blessed that we worship with such dedicated people. We had well over 40 volunteers, most of them working several days and/or shifts. This year the Market was run by committee. Thank you to all of our Holiday Market Coordinators for a job well done!
Holiday Market Bake Sale - December 15 following both services
Due to the ordination of our new bishop, The Rev. Marty Stebbins, on December 7, the Bake Sale will take place on Sunday, December 15.
Mark your calendars! You and your sweet tooth won't want to miss this celebration!
Parishioners at Holy Spirit are not only known for their baking expertise, they're also pretty good at enjoying the fruits of that baking! December 15th is the day for this year's Holiday Bake Sale, and as usual it will be held after both the 8 am and 10:15 am services. It's a good time to do some of your Christmas baking, putting a couple of plates aside for our Sale, not to mention buying some goodies to add to your inventory!
If you have a specialty, we hope that you will contribute it to the sale. Some annual favorites are mini-pies, cakes, rolls, whole pies, muffins, jams or jellies. The goodies will amaze and delight you. The famous cookie table is always a mouth-watering sight to behold - irresistible! This enables you to make up your own assortments.
Your donations for the Sale may be brought to the church kitchen:
- Friday, December 13, before 4:30 pm
- Saturday, December 14, between 10 am and 12 noon
- Sunday, December 15, before either service.
P.S. We will also be looking for helpers for both Sunday services. Please SIGN UP to help! Sign-ups will begin Sunday, December 1.
