What is Fleazaar?
Fleazaar is huge one day sale featuring merchandise of almost every kind. Flea market + bazaar = Fleazaar! Since the 1980's church members and the community have donated items to be sold. The sale is the 3rd Wednesday in July on our church grounds. Church members and community volunteers come together to put on this amazing event.
