COLUMBIA— The mortgage on Community United Methodist Church, 3301 W. Broadway, is finally paid off, and the congregation is celebrating with a Home Harvest Celebration from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Saturday at the church.
The event will begin with blues music, and a bonfire will be lit at 7 p.m. for attendees to roast hot dogs and marshmallows. In addition, there will be games and hayrides for all ages.
"The elimination of the monthly mortgage will allow us to support more ministry efforts financially, such as making the building more welcoming,” Worship Leader Julie Gibson said.
“We can also continue to improve the discipleship programs for children and adults, upgrade technology in worship and in the administrative offices and allow for more gifts to be used for mission efforts, locally and internationally.”
The event is free and open to the public.
