This year's CRAFTER'S MARKETPLACE is unique. Aside from crafter's there will be community resources that will show and provide information about their services. This will include: Covenant Village, Life Net 4 Families, and Operation Christmas Child
(Samaritan's Purse), Police and Fire Dept. and Mental Health Services.
The Bible Brunch ladies will have their Mission Haiti Project for Goats that will, again, showcase those beautiful greeting cards, only this time, all Christmas cards (They will blow your Santa's Socks off)...and added to that they will have the miniature paper village houses. Remember your parent's or grandparent’s Christmas village under the tree? Well, we have replicated that. Each house is crafted differently, so you can build your collection to make a village. Each house also has a flameless battery operated candle inside.
In addition to the Haiti Mission effort, you will have the opportunity to support our "own" (by adoption) Anna Moore (the daughter of Pastor and Lisa Moore) as she plans to enter the mission field of Wycliffe Bible Translators. She will be developing an alphabet and translation of the New Testament in the South Pacific. To help support her, the Women's Group has committed the proceeds from the "Hot off the Press OSL Cook Book".
And, of course, we have a very unique collection of handcrafted items for sale from several vendors, some vendors returning and some new with very different craft items. Keep SEPTEMBER 30th open for a pleasant day of browsing, buying, lunching and....purchasing those great homemade pastries from our bakery.
