    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - The 11th annual holiday bazaar will be on Saturday morning.

    Tamara Rowcroft and Michael Rowcroft joined Dano on Capital Chat Friday.

    Tamara Rowcroft, church member and Sunday School teacher, gave the details.

    "So it is tomorrow December 3rd at our church, St. Brendan's Episcopal Church. We'll be hosting our 11th annual holiday bazaar starting at 9 am going until 4 pm. We're located at 4207 Mendenhall Loop Road and if you have any questions, you can always call us at 789-5152."

    Rowcroft said what the bazaar will benefit.

    "This will benefit our outreach programs. We are very actively involved in many different organizations in our community and we want to help support these community organizations. We support just a few of them, the SE Food Bank, the Glory Hall, Meals on Wheels, prison ministries Johnson Youth Center."

    There will be a first-time children's table with projects the Sunday School kids have been working on, such as dog treats, toys, desserts, and ornaments.

    Michael Rowcroft is also a Sunday school teacher and a cook at the church. He said the church will have a hot breakfast.

    "We're gonna have pancakes, sausage, coffee, hot apple cider, and maybe a little surprise here and there. Lots of syrup and butter, so just come on down and enjoy a good start to your day with pancake breakfast."

    He also talked about the church's program, Godly Play.

    "Godly Play was based on the Montessori School method. And it starts with a story, biblical based story. And there's a lot of chance for the kids to do wandering questions and they have a feast where we share. And then they are into creative projects about either what they learned in the story or something else that they're interested in."

    Tamara Rowcroft invited more children in the community to join the program.

    "There's just a lot of opportunity for the kids to do hands-on and be creative hands-on. We'd love to have more kids in the community. Come join us there, any kids that are interested in a program like that, you're more than welcome to come and join us. We meet at 10:30 on Sundays, usually about 10:30 to noon."
