Event Details

Annual Alternative Gift Market for Missions Returns in November-get your Christmas shopping done early!

Christmas is meant to be celebrated, not regretted! We all want our Christmas to be a lot of things. Full of joy. Memories. Happiness. Above all, we want it to be about Jesus. What we don’t want is stress. Or debt. Or feeling like we “missed the moment”. Tired of giving dust-catchers? Do you ever see your loved one wear the shirt you gave them? Want to avoid the crowds at the malls? You can do all of this by giving a meaningful mission gift to your loved one AND giving a gift to someone in need. Christmas is a season of gratitude for gifts, especially the gift of Jesus from our loving God. We seek to imitate God in our gift-giving at this time of year. This Christmas consider giving a different kind of gift, a gift that gives twice. Give to your loved one, a bowl holder, soup, a certificate for clean water or to support Bed Start. Purchase soup and donate it to one of our Missions! When you do, your gift helps someone in need – a hungry family or a struggling child. Your giving can transform the world! Join us at the annual Alternative Gift Market for Missions, on November 13, 9am-Noon and November 14, 9am-12:30 pm in The Commons.
