- First Church Rummage Sale - May 9
First Church 73rd Rummage sale is coming up! Each year, more than 100 members and friends of First Church volunteer for this community building event.
One third of the proceeds from the Rummage Sale go directly to the Tiffany Window Fund while the other two thirds are split between the Transylvania Partner Church and Social Action Committees. The Rummage Sale serves many underprivileged members of the community, helps to keep tons of material from area landfills, and provides resale opportunities to many of our treasured charitable organizations. This highly regarded annual event provides needed funds, especially for the Tiffany Window Fund, and fosters community building and camaraderie.
