GIFTS OF GRACE – USE YOUR PURCHASING POWER FOR GOOD
The Commons – Sunday, November 26th 8:30 am – 12:00 pm
Looking for an alternative to consumer-driven Christmas shopping? If so, join us at Gifts of Grace. In the spirit of making God’s love tangible, you’ll find plenty of gift options that inspire change, and serve a dual purpose – to honor your friends and family, and at the same time help those in need. Ministries that serve those experiencing homelessness, the hungry, the poor, and those who cry out for justice will provide the opportunity to shop for gifts that give back. There will also be fair trade items to purchase.
