First Presbyterian Church, One John Calvin Circle, is hosting its annual Mardi Gras Madness on Monday, Feb. 15, featuring a scrumptious take-out meal of Grits & Grillades. Numerous online shopping opportunities include a silent auction, pottery, freezer food and fresh baked goods will be offered. There is something for everyone!
Mardi Gras Madness is an annual event that raises funds for the church’s global mission work, Living Waters for the World. Living Waters for the World installs water purification systems in such places as Mexico, Cuba, and Haiti. Church members have been involved with Living Waters for years and assist in installation and education of water purification system operation to the recipients.
“We are proud of the many volunteers who work tirelessly each year for this event. This is truly a committed church team effort from the staff and the members. Also, we thank the donors who graciously share their talent and donations with us,” states Anna Holder, Chairman.
The First Pres Potters’ beautiful wind chimes are back by popular demand. The ever popular Presbyterian Freezer is a great way to stock up on delicious freezer items from soups to casseroles.
The What’s Cooking section features homemade, sweets, fresh bread, and other delicious tasty baking treats.
The Silent Auction will offer highly sought after items; i.e., kids toys, restaurant gift cards, yard items, Flower arrangements, art by local artists, and much more. To see items and place bid in Silent Auction, go to link: 32auctions.com/fpcmgm2021
