Ever thought about giving a goat as a stocking stuffer or wrapping up a promise to serve a meal?
You can! That is what the Alternative Gift Market is all about. Give a gift that both honors your loved ones and friends while giving back to our local community or supporting our global missions.
On Sunday, December 2, 2012 alternative gifts will be available for purchase in the halls and parlor surrounding the sanctuary from 9:00 - 12:30. There are giving opportunities for 11 local agencies, Haiti OFCB and Presbyterian Disaster Assistance.
Fairly traded products including select coffees, teasand chocolates will also be available. Our local agencies are also in need of resources beyond money. You may give a gift of your time and/or talents by pledging these resources to honor your loved ones. With each purchase you will receive a gift card and note that can be given to your recipient acknowledging the item purchased or pledge made in their honor.
There are also more modestly priced gifts that are appropriate for children to give. This type of giving is a wonderful way to teach our children about the true meaning of Christmas.
