Vintage Revival Market will host a fall vintage market sale at Akron Church of the Brethren, 613 Main St., Akron, on Oct. 17, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Vintage Revival Market was established with the desire to create flea market style sales to showcase local talent, and to help the community by benefiting local ministries, charities, and causes. The sale features vintage and antique items, refinished furniture and repurposed and hand-crafted items from approximately 40 different vendors. In addition to the variety of vendors that the sale will hold, there will be a food stand featuring hot foods and baked goods. There will also be raffle items where tickets can be purchased to win donated items from local businesses and community members. All proceeds from the food stand, raffle items and vendor registration, will go directly to the operation and moving costs for HOHC.

House of His Creation (HOHC) is a housing ministry to single pregnant and parenting women. HOHC has joined with Loving and Caring Inc., a resource ministry, to create a covering ministry known as Family of Restoration Ministries. This body of ministries also includes community based programs such as Deeper Still Lancaster County, the Beautiful You Event and the growing Caring 4 Young Moms outreach, the Parenting Journey. The purpose of Family of Restoration Ministries is to provide individuals and organizations with services focused on restoring individuals and strengthening family ties, in the context of Christian compassion and charity.

HOHC officially moved its ministry offices as of July 1 to 541 W. 28th Division Highway, Lititz. They are selling their current ministry properties in Lititz and Coatesville and are under agreement to complete their purchase of the new property within a year. As they wait for sale completion to move their ministry house, they are in need of operational funds to continue their work.
