A Tasty Treats section will include homemade items that are ready to eat. The church’s Scout troop will have a fresh produce stand on the church grounds.

“We have taken special steps to make health and safety of our visitors and volunteers a top priority,” said craft coordinator Jennifer Gregory. “We have a large campus with shady areas so shopping can be outside, weather permitting, as well as the Larrick Fellowship Hall.”

Masks are required in the hall and the numbers of shoppers limited at any given time.

A take-out lunch of smoked pork, slaw and baked beans also will be available.

Throughout the year, volunteers create tree ornaments, floral arrangements, wreaths, all kinds of holiday decorations and unique repurposed benches, tables, cabinets, desks and more.

Funds raised through the bazaar are returned to the community with grants to non-profit organizations, said pastor Claudia Henderson.

“We also present to some local groups for their mission work in other countries,” Henderson said.
