FUNDRAISERS

• Presbyterian Women of Unity Presbyterian Church is having a huge indoor yard sale from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday, and beginning at 9 a.m. on Saturday, at 1857 Mercer-West Middlesex Road (Route 318) Mercer.

FESTIVALS

• Valley Alive Festival 2020 this year will celebrate Fear of Tabernacles from 3 to 6 p.m. on Saturday at Joshua’s Haven, 1230 Stambaugh Ave., Sharon.

This program includes: Rev. Natalie Griffin to lead the worship and Rev. Jesse Griffin, of Kingdom Reign Ministries, Youngstown, Ohio, to deliver the message. This year, Joshua’s Haven celebrates the 11th Annual Valley Alive – with a theme of “Call a Sacred Assembly and Cry Out to the Lord.” Seating begins at 2 p.m. and free admission. A free will offering will be taken.

Feast of Tabernacles is an eight-day festival that represents fulfillment of the coming Kingdom of God, which Jesus taught about extensively during His earthly ministry. Sukkot or “Feast of Tabernacles” also knows as Feast of Booths – the Jews celebrate this feast by erecting tents or temporary booths for the seven-day festival during the fall harvest. Valley Alive will begin with the sounding o the shofar by Pastor Jesse Griffin, as is custom in many Jewish and Christian worship gatherings and a Hebraic blessing by Pamela Evakich.

Valley Alive is intended for the community at large for an afternoon of worship, teaching and prayer for our cities, nation and all people; planned to bring people of Christian faith together for the glory of God.

For more information, call the Joshua’s Haven office, 724-983-0304.

VOLUNTEERING

• WaterFire Sharon is in dire need of some strong volunteers to help at 9 a.m. on Saturday. They need to move all the buoys, concrete anchors and brazier parts from the long bay to the second, short bay in the WaterFire warehouse at Franklin and Railroad streets in Sharon’s North Flats.

Social distancing will be practiced, and all participants must wear masks. Bring your own work gloves, and wear closed-toe shoes or boots. You will get dirty, and the work to be done is very heavy. This is the only work duty for he day, so those unable to do heavy lifting are asked to stay home for the safety of others.

If 25 strong volunteers show up, they should be able to complete the work by noon. If you own a dolly, it would be helpful if you could bring it.
