The public is invited to snatch up great deals at the Wauwatosa Avenue United Methodist Church rummage sale this Saturday, April 28 from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. WAUMC is located at 1529 Wauwatosa Ave.
Free parking is available behind the church on Underwood Avenue in the ramp and surface lot directly across the street from the fire station. Bargain seekers and treasure hunters should enter the building through the southwest door – look for the red roof – just off the surface lot.
Gently used household items, clothing for children and adults, books, jewelry and many more treasures just waiting to be discovered will be displayed on tables and racks in the church’s fellowship hall.
Proceeds support local United Methodist Women activities and three mission programs, including Northcott Neighborhood House in Milwaukee, WAUMC missionary to Zambia – Paul Webster and the United Methodist Committee on Relief.
“Our volunteers work hard to carefully organize a vast array of donated items, so shoppers have a good experience. And, the prices are very reasonable, because we know many in our neighborhood and the greater Milwaukee area continue to struggle during a sluggish economy,” explains WAUMC Pastor Sue Burwell.
Wauwatosa Avenue United Methodist Church dates back to 1848 and began with 42-members. Today, the congregation is 500 strong and firmly committed to inclusiveness, celebrating a diversity of people, ideas and cultures.
WAUMC offers two Sunday services, Christian education classes for individuals ages 3 through adult, a variety of adult and youth music programs and Girl Scout and Boy Scout troops. The congregation is involved with more than a dozen local, national and international mission outreach efforts.
