Indoor yard sale at Market Street Baptist today

Market Street Baptist Church, 37 Market St., is hosting an indoor yard sale today from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. Items fill the gym at the back of the building. Nothing is priced. Donations of whatever buyers can give will be accepted. The proceeds from this sale go directly to a fund that will pay the expenses for several church volunteers to go to Canada the week of Aug. 3-10.

This will be the fifth summer connecting with Pastor Ian MacFarlane and the members of the Living Hope Community Church in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Each year volunteers spend the week at this church helping with children’s programs like Vacation Bible School and Bible Basketball. The Canadian church’s volunteers have also come to Amesbury twice to help with similar programs.
