PBCWG Annual Garage Sale

PBCWG's Annual Garage Sale Will be
September 23rd  7am-noon at the church office

Children's lives continue to be transformed at VisionTrust schools in Liberia. Last year, over $7000 was raised between PBC Willow Glen & PBC Cupertino garage sales for this good cause. The brick school building has been started at Project #3 and we would like to help with the building completion!

In anticipation of the 2017 garage sale, please let your network know to save any gently used items for donation to this cause (tax deductible). 

Items can be dropped off at the church office on Friday, September 22 from 1-5pm or on the day of the sale starting at 7am.
Tax deductible receipts will be available at the Ministry Table starting Sunday.

Please note that we are not able to handle large furniture donations. Please come out and join us for the fun as helpers will be needed!    

Contact Mike Lipsey or Blair Bassett with questions.

Ministry Fair & BBQ: Tap-the-App Event

Ministry Fair (1).png

The PBCWG Ministry Fair is a special time that we set aside to celebrate the opportunities that God has given us to connect and serve within our church, in our local community, and beyond.  This festive, community-building event encourages people to consider their gifts, and explore how they can be used to further the PBCWG vision…Knowing God, Living Freely, Loving All.  It is a time to honor the Lord, to recognize & appreciate our volunteers, and to generate ministry awareness, enthusiasm, and involvement among our church family.  It offers people an easy way to ask questions and gather information about the many connecting, serving & outreach ministries that are active within our church community.  

“...created for good works, speaking truth,...doing the will of God from the heart.” (From Ephesians)

This year's Ministry Fair will have an added adventure of exploring our PBCWG app during the event.  You can follow along to win raffle prizes.  We will have a bounce house, donut tasting, corn hole, and more.

There will be a BBQ lunch following the festivities.

If you have any questions please contact Jan McClellan.
