The Little Church on the Prairie, located at 6310 Motor Av SW, Lakewood, Washington, according to church history, was founded at 10:00 a.m. Sunday, September 18, 1939. The church has been thriving and doing good works ever since.
Were you there or did you miss it? The Little Church on the Prairie held its latest church bazaar on Saturday, November 13, 2010. The bazaar has been held for at least 17 years, maybe more. It was great. Many members worked all year to create craft items, gifts, toys and wonderful hand made quilts – all of which are donated to the bazaar.
During the bazaar, members of our surrounding community visit the church and are able to purchase gifts for their Christmas list. A large portion of the money raised at the bazaar goes to good mission works promoted by the church such as Trinity Preschool After School Programs, Lakewood Area Shelter Association (LASA), Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital, Battered Women in India and Caring for Kids, to name just a few.
Pictured is one of our Lakewood Senior Citizens, Phyllis Boyle, who not only worked on the project all year long, but got dressed in a holiday dress to add to the fun atmosphere.
Oh, did I tell you they had some treats like Palouse soup and a selection of homemade pies? Yes, I said homemade pies. I am going next year on November 12, 2011 (9:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.). See you there. I will be hovering by the pie table.
