At the Methodist Church fellowship hall, sale hours are 9 a.m.-3 p.m. The special features include Time-Out Kids, distinctive doll designs, and pecans for holiday baking. There will be crafts, plants, angels, bakery and treasure table. Among the offerings in a silent auction will be a bird sculpture by noted artist Ed Bennett.. Lunch will be served from 11 a.m.-2 p.m., with coffee, sweet rolls and pies available all day. Proceeds go to missions, locally and abroad. Langley United Methodist is at 3rd and Anthes streets. The Women of St. Hubert Catholic Church will hold their annual Bazaar and Pantry Sale from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the church annex at the corner of 3rd and DeBruyn streets in Langley. For the fourth year in a row, the artisans have taken over the downstairs family room of Langley resident Jean Duffy, working on their handcrafts since February. These include items ranging from lavender sachets, Christmas potholders, wreaths and candycane reindeer to angel tree toppers, embroidered table runners, a gingerbread house, children's bear pillows and Beanie Baby beds. Knitted hats and doll sweaters will be for sale alongside flannel bathrobes for American Dolls and handquilted wall hangings in several sizes. A favorite is a small fabric church doll, which pioneer mothers made to keep their children from fidgeting during church services. A lunch of hot vegetable soup, rolls and pumpkin pie will be available for those made hungry by all the shopping. And this year the bazaar features a raffle for a fully decorated 6-foot Christmas Tree. Tickets ($1) will be sold at the bazaar and the drawing will be held at its close. "
