Give Some Gifts That Make a Difference!
Give a gift that delights its recipient and helps someone in Christ’s hurting world. The church’s Outreach Committee will host the 8th annual “ALL GOOD GIFTS” Alternative Gift Fair on Saturday, November 23rd, 9am-3pm and Sunday, November 24th, 9am-Noon in the Fellowship Hall. Many of our church’s ministry partners and other non-profits will offer unique items for sale with 100% of the proceeds going back to those ministries and the people they serve. Christ UMC’s Youth will serve lunch on Saturday from 11 to 1. On Sunday morning, Christ UMC’s Prison Ministry will offer breakfast from 9 to 11.
The annual fair features handcrafted gifts, holiday décor, fair trade goods, baked goods, services, as well as information about the work of the non-profits and ministries represented. This year’s vendors include Thistle Farms, Gentry Educational Foundation, Project Transformation, Miriam’s Promise, Last Minute Toy Store, Raise the Roof Academy, Room in the Inn, The Nicaragua Project, Christ UMC’s Prison Ministry, Serrv International, Ten Thousand Villages, Bridges Domestic Violence Center, Johnson Elementary Special Classes , Habitat El Salvador and more. This year, Anne Hook and her elves will offer a children’s craft activity while parents shop.
