Community Wide Free Garage Sale This Weekend at Broken Bow Berean Church

BROKEN  BOW–Volunteers from the Berean Bible Church in Broken Bow (2419 Memorial Dr, Broken Bow, NE 68822) are inviting the public to help be the hands and feet of Jesus by hosting a community wide FREE garage sale.

The free event will take place on Friday, November 20 from 1 to 5 p.m. and Saturday, November 21 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Bundle day is Thursday, November 19 from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Drop off donation items at the church or contact Judy Schweitzer at 308-870-7340, or call 308-870-2614, 308-750-0686, or 308-872-5720.

“The bundle day is where everybody brings in their bundles of blessings. Something they’ve used that it’s been a blessing in their life and they are no longer able to use it. Either it’s too small now, or they decided to decorate different, whatever it is if they just no longer use it. But it’s been a blessing, it’s in good condition, and it’s clean!” Judy Schweitzer told KCNI/KBBN.

A similar event was held years ago in conjunction with a Food Bank for the Heartland event and Schweitzer said it went over well. Members of the Berean Bible Church such as Schweitzer and Jackie Linville said they wanted to bring the garage sale back to help members of the community, especially in the year of COVID-19.

Items will be distanced, sanitizer will be available, and masks are required. Patrons of the free garage sale can also enjoy coffee, tea, and cookies while they “shop.” Everyone is required to bring their own mask and their own box/bags for items they will take home.

Judy Schweitzer shared a story with KCNI/KBBN regarding the free garage sale. Author unknown:
She rises from the floor where
She’s been on her knees
Spending time with her Lord
Filled with Praises and Needs
Bless The Lord Oh My Soul
These aching bones are
Taking a toll
I think I’ll get a cup of coffee
sit a spell
I want to read this letter
that came in the Mail
It’s from a group in the
They say their planning a FREE
Event they want to Share
With Me
They say they want my Time
And Help
Shooey!! She sits down
with a Yelp!
They want to have a FREE
Garage Sale
Her tea cools as she reads
on for awhile
And slowly she begins to Smile!!
They say with my help their
Force will be Mighty
I wonder.. “Do they know….
I’m Nearly Ninety?!!????
With a twinkle in her eye she
Smiles with Glee
By golly , this Gramma feels Led
Maybe I could even make
Brownies or Bread
Or maybe I’ll just make
Cookies instead!!
I know I can Share a dress with
Someone down the street
I know, maybe I can find a Blouse
That might be quite a treat!
I’d best call Mabel and get
her started
I know she’ll have Fun,
She’s So Good Hearted
We’lle go and sit and visit awhile
And as we watch it both our
Hearts will smile
Every Good and Perfect Gift
Is from The Father Above
Would you like to come
Share Your Love?!
Don’t be shy, give us a shout
It would make us HAPPY
without a Doubt!!
