Lord's Acre Fair 2020
We are sorry to announce that the Lord’s Acre Fair will not be able to take place this year. It’s going to be a historic loss to all of us in terms of community outreach, fellowship, food, and fun. But there’s just no way to make it safe for all our workers and guests, so we’ll have to look ahead to next year to make up for the fun we’ve postponed from this year. We are not accepting any donations of goods and additionally, there will be no summer presales.
So that brings us to a consequence of postponement, and that is, we will not have generated any of the usual funds from holding the Fair that we use to operate the church and to give away to the community. And this, in a time of greatest need for many vulnerable families that live in our neighborhoods. So here is our request for each family and member of our church. Can you, instead of making your donations to the Fair in time spent, purchases made, food eaten and donations gifted: can you add them all up and consider a cash donation this year? Please give as you are moved to do, and don’t think of it as your pledge, but as what you probably would have spent at the Fair. Perhaps then we will still have ways to support our church and share with those in need in our community. And you can think of it as a bridge to next year’s Fair, and as a way to express your gratefulness for all the joy and fellowship of those previous years. Many thanks and blessings to any of you who can find a way to make that happen! You can use our new electronic giving method thru Vanco, or the usual, a check in the mail… Please make sure to mark it for LAF!
We are having a place-holder event for the Fair weekend, by hosting a Brooks Barbecue on Saturday, September 12th. We will have details soon.
We thank our community for your past support and generosity!
