Barrington church's yard sale to benefit mission trip

Stop by the Presbyterian church on Saturday

Posted

Members of the Barrington Presbyterian Church are holding an indoor yard sale this Saturday, June 3 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

A variety of items will be available to buy at reasonable prices and all proceeds from the yard sale will help fund a July 15-23 church mission trip to West Virginia. 

Minister Patrick Notley and five parishioners, including two youth, will be traveling to an impoverished area to help the West Virginia Ministry of Advocacy and Work Camps by doing construction work for handicapped veterans and others in need.

Funds earned at the sale will help defray costs of travel, housing, food and supplies for the missionaries while on the trip.

Kate Notley, co-chairwoman of the sale along with Betsy Champlain, said the church holds a yard sale every other year and it is usually organized by the women’s group at the church.

“This year is a church-wide endeavor. Most of the items are donated by church members and their friends and family. In the past we have raised about $2,000 from the yard sale and we are hopeful to be as successful this year,” Mrs. Notley said.

Clothes will be sold for $6 per bag, and this year there is a nice selection of men’s clothing. Peruse the selection of furniture, dishes, toys, plants and more.
Cash and credit cards are accepted. Items not purchased will be donated to a local charity.

Barrington Presbyterian Church is located at 400 County Road.
