Our annual Alternative Gift Market is virtual this year! We hope you’ll take time to explore the local non-profit agencies and PC(USA) missions listed below and consider donating to one, or more, of them in honor of a friend or family member this Christmas.
Many of the organizations have cards you can give to your intended recipient to tell them that you have given in their honor, but if you make a donation and still need a card to wrap under tree, please contact us!
Donations can be brought to the church THIS SUNDAY – December 13 from 1-2pm
