Bay Head, New Jersey

St. Paul's UMC is pleased to welcome local artists with their original paintings, drawings, prints and hand-made crafts to the Art Show, Sale and Boutique to be held on Saturday, July 24th, in front of the church. Artists including Ann Hayes, Ted Ricchiuti, Janice Collinson, Paula Kolojeski, Pauline Mickle, and Sheila Mickle, are just a few who will be outside under their tents on the church lawn. And be sure and bring your children! We have a great activity booth for the kids - with games, prizes, and face painting.

Artwork on display by favorite local artists

Inside will be crafters with hand-made items, a Silent Auction to raise funds for the missions of the church, and the United Methodist Women's Boutique. Hand-made doll clothes and furniture, afghans, baby clothes, Christmas shell ornaments, stuffed animals, aprons, quilts and specialty items will be for sale. The Boutique Committee works all year on various projects, including making lap blankets for the soldiers at Bethesda Naval Hospital and Walter Reade Hospital in Washington, DC. The proceeds from the Boutique sales help finance materials and other mission work of St. Paul's.

There will be musical entertainment at the Art Show. Local restaurants within walking distance to the church will be open for lunch. So stop by on your way to the beach (three blocks away!) or to the local shops in Bay Head and support a worthwhile cause! The show will be held from 10am to 4pm. There is no Rain Date for this event. Proceeds from all activities go to the missions and general funds of St. Paul's United Methodist Church, and to finance St. Paul's Christmas event, A Night in Bethlehem, which will be held on Sunday, December 5th from 3pm to 6pm.
