Here’s some events to keep you busy this weekend

The Church of the Advent is hosting its 26th annual Garage Sale this Saturday, May 5.

This Sunday, May 6, the Redeemer Lutheran Churchis hosting an opening celebration service at 3 p.m. with a reception to follow.

The original church, used by the members of Redeemer, was completed in 1964 on the corner of Jacklin and Jenkins. But a number of years ago it was determined the original building was in such disrepair that it needed to be replaced. In January 2012 the building was torn down and Redeemer met at the Alexander Mackie Lodge for more than six years until their first service in the new building on April 22 – also located on the corner of Jacklin and Jenkins.

Looking ahead, the Spencer Middle School PAC is hosting its annual garage sale on May 12.
