Women of Immanuel
Spirit of Christmas Bazaar
are already in the planning stages for this year’s Bazaar after a very successful November 2023 Bazaar. We cleared $11,431 after all expenses were subtracted and $11,400 was distributed among groups and organizations. That distribution was a blessing and gave us thankfulness for what we had accomplished. These included 5 areas within Immanuel and 11 areas for community needs.
The Tri-Chairs, or sometimes known as the Bizarre Babes, will again chair the 2024 Bazaar. We are looking for an individual who is enthusiastic about the Bazaar and would love to join us as this will be our last year to chair. We will be training you as we work together. This individual will recruit one or two other people to share in that responsibility for the following year. We have found that having three chair people has lessened the work load especially if someone is unavailable.
2802 have absolutely wonderful subcommittee chairs who have taken charge of their specialized area, and this has made our Bazaar one of the best in the area. We thank all of you for your dedication and commitment to those areas. We pray that there is someone who answers that “tap on the shoulder” to make this commitment to chair along with us.
Looking ahead, we have a Meal With a Mission scheduled for April 14. Proceeds from this meal will pay for advertising and other expenses. Some individuals are needed to organize and plan this meal. Please contact anyone of the Tri-Chairs to let us know that You are that person. A Thrivent member of Immanuel will register for a $250 debit card to help with the meal expenses.
Bazaar has been a wonderful mission program for many years and has been successful in gifting many organizations that have been in a financial need. Please prayerfully consider filling one of the above mentioned areas so that Immanuel’s Bazaar can continue to be a success in our service and endeavors to helping others in need.
