New Hope Christmas Bazaar 2017

The New Hope Evangelical Presbyterian Church continued the decades long tradition of a Christmas Bazaar on Saturday December 2 at their new location at 37069 Main Street in Burney.

Christmas crafts and gifts

The bazaar featured with a wonderful array of Christmas crafts, gift items, and baked goods beautifully displayed in an atmosphere of Christmas cheer.

Delicious baked goods

Ladies from the church worked diligently to prepare gourmet delights such as cherry cheesecake, cherry pie, cherry cranberry pie, and other goodies as well as dozens of boxes of Christmas cookies.

Tables were situated so that people could enjoy a fresh slice of pie and a cup of coffee as they shopped and visited with one another.

Joy to the world!

Solid Rock Foursquare church in Burney, Ca is preparing “The House” for the homeless in our community. Two seniors, as part of their “Senior Project”, will be putting in two bathrooms and a commercial washer and dryer for those who need to get clean.

The overall goal of this project is to; 1) Provide a place where the homeless can feel human again and 2) Be an organization that champions compassion to those less fortunate in our community.

Thank you to all the hard workers that have helped so far.
