"The Gift of Christmas"
Saturday, Nov. 4, 2017    9 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Each year the First Lutheran Church Women (FLCW) host the fall Bazaar to raise funds for local,
regional and global missions. In 2016 over $48,000 was given to 38 programs, ministries or agencies. 

Every year there is something new! Invite a friend and shop this year's bazaar! 


The Gift of Christmas

For generations the women of First Lutheran Church have given of themselves to help others. Click for a gallery of photos of the wonderful women (and men) who have made the Bazaar such a success over the years.


Due to a few wonderful donations, this year Attic’s Treasure will include a Boutique Shop with new, never used items that include brands such as Lenox Christmas ornaments and dishes, Christopher Radko ornaments, Longaberger and Peterboro baskets, Polish pottery and Swarovski Crystal ornaments and animals. Come and visit all the wonderful shops at the Bazaar and get a jump on your Christmas shopping.
