Planning has begun for the 2019 Fall Festival Methodist Marketplace, Saturday, October 19th.
There will be 21 vendors selling lots of products in Aldersgate. We have 3 tables left to sell and want to offer these to members of the church before we advertise to others. There are 2 ways to use these tables. One is to sell your items and give all the money to the Fall Festival funds which benefit the church’s mission projects. The other way is to pay a $50 rental fee to vendor and keep the money you make.
If you are interested please contact Joyce Gregory 972-298-0214 or firstname.lastname@example.org

A Special Thank You Message
Thank you for the prayers, cards, texts, calls, and so many other gestures of love and concern while I was in Colorado Springs with my family. The gifts of time with my sister during her last day and with my family in the days following are priceless.
Grace and Peace,
As you know, there was a fire in my apartment complex on the evening of July 7 which required the immediate evacuation of my section. I was forced to abandon everything in my apartment and stay in a hotel until I could find another apartment and move once the building was declared safe to enter.
I am now in my new apartment and want to thank my church family for your prayers and support, not only during this emergency, but in all the previous moves and acts of kindness that I have received.
Thanks to my Sunday school class- Progressors- who have shown me great love, Carol and Craig Bigelow for all their help, Barb Allen for giving me a place to sleep that first night, Mike O’ Brien for repairing and refinishing the beautiful sofa table that he and Sharon Karger rescued, for all the packing boxes that were essential to getting me moved, for all those who have made donations to help cover the hotel and moving expenses, to those who offered assistance and prayers, and to Sharon Karger for her help. I’m still unpacking, but I am almost settled in.
My heartfelt thanks to you all! God is good.
