First Presbyterian’s annual rummage sale takes place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Feb. 9-11, at the church in Delray Beach.
The organizers call it the Step-Above Rummage Sale because of the quality of the items. New and gently used items are all you’ll find. Some items will still have store tags attached.
In Fellowship Hall, shoppers will find women’s and kids’ clothes, hung on racks and sorted by department. There’s a comfortable sitting area to try on the shoes — no hopping on one foot! — which are organized by size. All clothing and shoes are $3. Accessories cost less.
In the courtyard, shoppers will find men’s clothing and shoes, all $3, hung up and sized. There also will be an eclectic assortment of books, craft supplies, toys, sports equipment, bicycles, luggage, electronics and tools.
In Holly House, home of the popular Holiday Gift Shop, jewelry, purses, accessories, lamps and art will be available. You’ll also find the linen department and housewares there. Sales specialists will be on hand to assist shoppers and answer questions.
Cash and checks are accepted for payment. First Presbyterian Church is at 33 Gleason St.. For more information, call 561-276-6338 or visit www.firstdelray.com/upcoming-events.

Night to Shine in Boca
On Feb. 10, St. Paul Lutheran Church and School in Boca Raton plans to join more than 600 other churches from around the world to host 100,000 guests with the help of 200,000 volunteers at a very special prom night experience for people 14 and older with special needs.
Night to Shine is “centered on God’s love,” and is sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation. After two years of virtual events, the nonprofit is thrilled to host a live event this year. To make it extra special, guests get to walk the red carpet while paparazzi photograph them in all their prom finery. Buddies provide companionship so no one feels left out.

Masking up?
St. Gregory’s Episcopal Church of Boca Raton is just one church that has made changes as a result of the uptick in COVID-19 cases amid the highly contagious kraken variant.
St. Gregory’s policy update: “In accordance with CDC guidelines and at the advice of our COVID Advisory Team, the wearing of masks at St. Gregory’s is recommended for in-person gatherings. If you are feeling unwell, please view our services online at www.facebook.com/SaintGregorys.”
Experts advise carrying a mask and hand sanitizer and checking with the church you plan to attend for new recommendations.
