16th Annual Fall Festival - September 30th - 8:00 a.m. till 2:00 p.m.
This event coincides with Mercerburg's "Town Fest", so it is a great day to be out and about, eat, shop, and visit various vendors. At the church we will have a BIG yardsale in various rooms, organized by themes. We have a room for odds and ends, children's toys and clothing, a holiday shop, the mall of bargains, cave of wonders (featuring beautiful jewelry), the "Country Store" which features the finest baked goods around, and more!! We also feature a MASSIVE silent auction with HUNDREDS of items including trips, gift baskets, sports memorabilia, jewelry, electronics and much, much more!! The auction is a TON of FUN! In addition, we serve delicious breakfast sandwiches, steamers, and other great food throughout the day. Fall Fest begins at 8:00 a.m. and concludes at 2:00 p.m. Please note that the silent auction bidding ends at 1:00 p.m. though!
This is our biggest annual fundraiser and the proceeds go to our various missions throughout the year. Monies raised also enable us to help those in need and support community projects!!
Lots of help is always needed throughout Fall Fest. From the weeks leading up to it, the day itself, and clean-up afterward, help is appreciated. Anyone who attends FUMC should come out and support this BIG event! It takes a real team effort, but is such a blessing to all who attend and help. It is amazing to see what God can do through all our hard work!
