MUSKOGEE, OK—Representatives from Muskogee Village Church reported Monday that they were “very pleased” with the Outreach Ministry’s annual bake sale, which managed to raise over two dollars to help fund an upcoming missions trip to Mexico.
The bake sale, for which volunteers slaved away for hours baking apple pie, cupcakes, and peach cobblers, among other delicious items, saw dozens of church members walking by and wishing the missions team well. Several parishioners even picked up a few different varieties of baked goods, according to eyewitnesses, and told the volunteers running the booth that they would just run to their car and get a few dollars to help support the sale.
When the dust had settled from the veritable stampede toward the booth on the church’s front walkway, the missions team reported they had made right around $2.12 in gross proceeds, after they factored in the burnt cherry pie that Ms. Monroe had returned for a full refund.
While the team is riding high on their hugely successful fundraising venture, they say they’re not going to rest on their laurels.
“Next week, we’re going to have a car wash. We’re projecting a massive influx of around $15 for that one, unless it rains,” the head of the Outreach Ministry said hopefully.
