Seaside United Methodist Church will host the Country Fair Spring Fling at the church, 1300 Seaside Road, Sunset Beach, on Saturday, May 18 from 8 am to 1 pm (rain date May 25).  This year, for customer comfort, almost all of the events will be inside – temperature-controlled and weather-worry free.


Upon entering the church building shoppers will encounter a fabulous bakery section filled with delicious home-made goodies just like mom used to make. In the Fellowship Hall there will be tables and tables filled with a huge variety of housewares at rock-bottom prices. Look for baskets, dishes, pet supplies, small appliances, rugs, painting, knick-knacks, pottery and much, much more. Moving through the building, shoppers will have the opportunity to browse in our Better Buys; these are household items that are extra special and though still a bargain, priced higher than goods found in Housewares. Shoppers will also find a Crafting Corner, where hand-crafted items take center stage.  Tools, hardware and electronic items will also be available for sale. Right outside the church will be a tent for sporting goods and equipment. Want a bike?  We’ve got one, maybe two or three for you! Golf clubs? Absolutely! Look for fishing poles, tennis rackets, beach chairs and toys – really, anything to do with sports and leisure activities. Also outside will be a tent filled with garden items. We’ll have pots, gardening equipment, flags, birdhouses — lots of fun items to add interest to your home’s garden and lawn.


Of course, while shopping you might get hungry – we’ll have breakfast items and for lunch, including hot dogs! Our Welcome Desk will be staff to help anyone unsure of where to start, and friendly greeters will point you in the right direction. There will also be blood pressure checks available at our health station inside the church.


Proceeds from the Country Fair go to Seaside’s Outreach Ministries at the local, state, national and international level. A few of the programs the church supports are the SUMC Food Pantry, Edge of the Field Free Store, Brunswick County Literacy Council, Beach House Recovery, Rainbow Covenant, UMCOR Disaster Relief, STARS Program, South Brunswick Interfaith Council, Habitat for Humanity, Emergency Aid Fund, Christian Recovery Center, Brunswick Family Assistance, Matthew 25 Ministries and many more. Your purchases positively impact these programs and help people here at home as well as farther afield. Please mark your calendars now, as you will want to be the first in line to shop the treasures that will be awaiting you and in turn support necessary outreach programming.
