Are You Ready for Bistro...?

The 28th annual Bistro will be held December 3, 2017.

Every year Market Square's Fellowship Hall is transformed for a day into a festive eatery for lunch and dinner seatings. For 28 years, our congregation comes together to cook, bake, serve, clean up, eat, and enjoy a wonderful day working together for one purpose:  to raise a significant contribution that will help bolster the work of Christian Churches United's Help Ministries.

Bistro runs on volunteers and 100% of the proceeds raised go to CCU.  So we need a lot of volunteer chefs, bakers, and workers in the days before and especially on the day OF Bistro, December 3, 2017.  There are red sign up forms included in the worship bulletins during November. 

To sign up for Bistro, you can go

Lunch time entertainment (12 - 2 pm) for this year's Bistro is Bob Gutheinz and Janelle Yeager on hammer dulcimer and flute.   Steve Rudolph (and maybe a surprise guest as well) is on the stage for the evening seating - cool jazz for an almost winter evening from 5 - 7 pm.

This year's soups:  Man Doo Guk (Korean dumpling soup); Savory Vegetable Beef; Chicken Tortilla; Asiago Cheese, Spinach & Chick Pea; and Golden Autumn Harvest.  Delicious soups, lots of great breads, muffins, brownies, cookies and other treats!  

You need to purchase a ticket, which has a price of $15.00 (kids under 10 are $5.00).  Tickets are available for purchase at the door.  If you wish to make an even bigger contribution to CCU's Help Ministries prior to the Bistro, you may sponsor a table, for which you receive 2 complimentary Bistro tickets and our thanks with a table tent on one of the Bistro tables and recognition on our Table Banner.  Table sponsorships are available for $125.00 per table.
