DOWAGIAC — A local church is gearing up for one of its biggest events of the year.

First United Methodist Church, 326 N. Lowe St., Dowagiac, will host its annual spring rummage and bake sale from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, March 15 and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, March 16.

The sale – which has been a church staple for roughly 20 years – will feature clothing, home goods, media, books, furniture, tools, medical supplies and more. 

That Saturday, unmarked clothing will sell for $4 per bag while marked clothing and other items will be sold at half price.

In addition to gently used clothing and products, the church will also host a bake sale in conjunction with the rummage sale to feature homemade baked goods. The rummage sale is a church community effort. According to event organizer Darlene Trussell, more than a dozen volunteers are helping bring the sale to life.

Proceeds from the sale will go toward the church’s general fund and renovation projects.
