St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church invites members of the community to come browse and buy at a garage sale being held to raise money for an annual youth retreat.

“Every type of thing from furniture to clothes to books will be there,” parish administrator Sheryl Mehrhoff said. Members of the church will be donating the items sold at the garage sale.

Proceeds will go towards the church’s youth trip to Rainbow Trail Lutheran Camp, in Hillside, Colo.

“It’s an experience that they do every year as part of their confirmation,” Mehrhoff said.

Mehrhoff said that in addition to raising funds, the garage sale also provides a positive experience for those involved in running it.

“It’s an opportunity for church members to contribute in a different sort of way,” she said. “The youth also help out with the garage sale, so it teaches them about service as well.”

The garage sale will be held in the fellowship hall at St. Andrew’s from 8 a.m. to noon March 12.

    How about including a street address and maybe a link to a map?
