Quilt Is Raffle Prize for Festival
First Presbyterian Church, in Carthage, will hold a fall festival Saturday, Nov. 6, at the Carthage Community Center, 203 W. Barrett St., Carthage.
The event begins at 9 a.m. and ends at 2 p.m.
"The entire church family has come together to demonstrate their individual talents and creativity in making crafts," says a spokesman. "There will be a large variety of handmade crafts, homemade goods, candy, artwork, plants, gently used household treasures and good food."
All crafts will be donated for sale at the festival, and all proceeds will benefit the building fund.
Longtime member Anna Belle Campbell has handmade a "Bear Paw" quilt, which is to be raffled off the day of the festival. Information about raffle tickets is available by calling (910) 947-2924.
The Crawley Creek Company Band will provide live entertainment from 11 a.m. to noon. There will also be games for children.
First Presbyterian Church was founded in 1850. In 1913, the sanctuary was built at 110 Ray St., where it still stands today. There has been only one addition to the church since the initial construction. On Aug. 7, 1949, a new educational building was dedicated to the church, the Currie Memorial Building.
This year, under the leadership of the Rev. Rick Martindale, the church fellowship is embarking on the construction of a much-needed addition for a growing church family and for extended community outreach.
