Hidden Blessings pop-up shopping to benefit Speed the Light Missions

Hidden Blessings Consignment and Upscale Pop-Up Shopping will be held on Friday, March 24, from 5-9 p.m. and Saturday, March 25, from 8 a.m.-noon at First Assembly of God in the Family Life Center.

Hidden Blessings is looking for personal craftsmanship, re-purposed items, and unique and eclectic what- nots. “The idea is to help you clear out those items that are nice enough to just hang on to for a while, but now it’.s.time.to.let.it.go,”.Hidden.Bless­ing . committee co-chairman Denise Hamrick said.

“Here’s an idea – make a big basket of kitchen gadgets, cook-books, and those weird little coffee cups, tie it up pretty in a clear bag for the person who loves a grab bag steal,” Hamrick continued. “The possibilities are lim­itless and this is your time to shine, and to shop.”

Additionally, Hidden Blessings will consign your non-clothing items with a $10 value and up, along with children’s clothing of any value, sizes 0 – 16.

Those interested may also rent a booth to sell their own style of up­scale treasures.

Items for consignment will be ac­cepted from 8 a.m.-9 p.m. on Thurs­day, March 23, and on Friday from 8 a.m.-3 p.m.

A bake sale, garden sale, and jams, jellies, and honey will also be avail­able at the consignment.

Tickets for dine-in or take-out dinner on Friday night are currently on sale.

All proceeds will benefit Speed the Light Missions (STL), which strives to “give so others can speed the light of the gospel to a world in darkness. This is accomplished by providing the ‘essential transportation and creative communication’ equipment for missionary evangelism. Through modern transportation, radio, televi­sion, the printed word, and equipment for mass evangelism, our missionar­ies can better fulfill the Great Com­mission.

“Speed the Light is the student- initiated, volunteer, charitable pro­gram that provides much-needed equipment to missionaries across the nation and in over 180 countries around the world.”

Hamrick included that the event is also intended to introduce new youth pastors Phil and Yarianna Wortz, as they’ve recently joined the Lincoln County community, and who help direct STL at First Assembly.

Participants are asked to donate at least 20 percent of booth or con­signment proceeds to this mission, however they are free to donate more if they feel so inclined. “Let the Lord guide your heart,” Hamrick said, including that some are donat­ing 100 percent of their proceeds toward STL.

“It’ll be a lot of fun, and we should have a lot of good and interesting items,” she said.

Shearell Scott is also acting as com­mittee co-chairman for the event.

First Assembly of God is located at 328 May Avenue in Lincolnton.
