Fundraising

Our Church enjoys organizing a variety of fundraisers


Winter Wonderland Fair

IMG_1099First Congregational Church’s annual Winter Wonderland Fair is always a highlight of Melrose’s Home for the Holidays weekend! The Fair is Friday night from 6 PM – 8 PM, and Saturday from 9 AM – 2 PM.

There are fabulous raffle baskets and silent auction offerings as well as a great variety of baked goods, and tables full of gently used Christmas decorations, jewelry, collectibles, tools, books, and gifts.

On Friday night – we offer a Baked Potato Bar, as well as Mac and Cheese and Hot Dogs and “Comfort Food” Lunch on Saturday.

Church Yard Sale

Got Books

Our church also raises funds by hosting a “Got Books” collection box that you’ll see at the front corner of our parking lot. When you’re doing your spring cleaning, or any other time, bring those dusty old books to the book box. The church receives money for those books by the pound!
