Alternative Gift Fair Ministry

The Alternative Gift Fair Ministry hosts a fair on the first Sunday in December.  This fair is all about giving to those whom Jesus believed in most: the underserved.  Local, national and international nonprofits will be offering honorary gift cards in exchange for donations.  Both the Middle School Youth Group and the Senior High Youth Group sell crafts in order to support a charity or their work camp. In December, 2007, at our first fair, we raised over $13,000 for the 8 nonprofits!  This fair is a tremendous amount of work and we rely upon the help of many people in our congregation who bake pies, soup and bread for our Angel Café and help serve at the Café.  There are other volunteer opportunities which involve being the liaison between the church and the nonprofits.
