A number of antiques dealers and collectors from throughout the area will join with church members who will also have a variety of items on display and for sale.

“This show and sale has been a very successful activity for the last four years. We are very happy to be able to stage the event in conjunction with the activities of the Red Hills Festival,” reported Jerry Nance who coordinates the annual event for the church. “The United Methodist Men’s group and the Chancel Choir are assisting in staging this year’s event. There have been many requests for continuance of this show and sale in conjunction with the Red Hills Festival, and we are anticipating an even more successful event this year,”
