2019 Peace Family Advent Festival
Wednesday, December 4 ~ 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM
A way that families can prepare for the season and support the Peace Preschool Scholarship fund.
The annual Peace Advent Festival will kick off the Advent season in a meaningful spiritual way on Wednesday, December 4th. The event that is Peace wide, focuses on family friendly ornaments/projects that can enhance everyone’s Advent season, dinner together and then a family friendly worship event to move us gracefully and faithfully into the season that leads us to Christmas. All proceeds including those from a silent auction go to fund the Preschool Scholarship program that helps families in need in powerful ways.
Thanks to the generosity of this congregation, Peace Preschool has awarded 41 scholarships totaling close to $100,000 since 2010 when the preschool was first established. This year, the Advent Festival is the main fundraising event for the scholarship fund. There will be free will offering for dinner and crafts in addition to a silent auction and raffle.
Auction: Silent Auction items will be on display in the Narthex with opportunity to bid throughout the evening. The silent auction will include a vast array of prizes including Bucks, Badger and Packer tickets, Pump It Up Party, $1000 worth of tile work, baked goods, advent wreath from Sweet Pea Floral, Cozy blanket from Simply Unique and much more.
Raffle: Raffle tickets will be sold throughout the evening for a chance to win the GIFT CARD TREE that will be ornamented with gift certificates ranging from $5 – $25 from local businesses including food, gas and shopping. The lucky winner will be drawn at the end of the evening.
