Garage & Bake Sale

(April 7 & 8)

 

We are holding a Giant (Huge, Really, really BIG) Garage Sale, as well as, a Bake Sale to benefit Eylau United Methodist Church, Friday and Saturday, April 7 & 8.  There will be something for everyone: children’s clothes & toys, adult clothes, kitchen, bathroom, living room stuff, furniture, small appliances, and knick-knacks galore — some used, some new.

 

So, now is the time.  Clean out those closets’ you have been putting off doing, also storage units too.  All donated items can be placed in the gym, on the left  side of the door.  We will have a sign up sheet for all those who would like to work setting up and/or during the sale.

 

If you have any items you’d like to donate, you need more information or you would like to donate an hour or two to this effort please contact a Finance Committee member.

 

Thank You for your service to our Lord!

Islam & Christianity

(Sundays – 5 PM)

 

Journey with a former Muslim as he shares the evidence that led him from Islam to Christianity.

Register On-line: http://eylauumc.org

• What do Muslims believe about Christianity and Jesus.

• What do Muslims believe about prophets, the Christian Bible and the Quran?

• How do the messages of Christianity and Islam differ?

 In “Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus,” we will discuss these and many other interesting questions.

Although Easter eggs were once part of pagan spring festivals, they’ve become Christian symbols of new life.  A cracked-open shell also represents Jesus’ empty tomb on Easter morning.
