Look for your September Lamplighter issue and the church website www.redmondcpc.org/Auction-Sept-9.htm for more details about this Silent Auction.
Save the Dates! Please mark your calendars for our HUGE parking lot sale on Friday-Saturday, September 14-15. NOTE that there is still plenty of time to consider donating unwanted items that others may treasure to our annual sale that supports our partner church in Mombasa, Kenya, with meals for the children and hygenic products for the girls so that they may attend school. Items that are particularly desired include tools, garden equipment, seasonal items such as Christmas decorations and lightly used clothing. Clean and ready-to-sell donations need to be brought to the church on Thursday, September 13. For more information, please contact Rocky Johnson or Margo Menown through the church office.
