Give an Alternative Gift this Christmas

Missions Market Web-01

While we know that Christmas shopping seems to start earlier and earlier every year, November is the perfect time to cross a few people off your list with an alternative gift during the Christmas Missions Market.

Start your shopping by visiting the Missions Market webpage where you can browse the organizations being supported and find more information about their impact in the communities they serve. Organizations include:

  • Alpha Center
  • Banderas Bay Women’s Shelter
  • CompassioNET Impact
  • Finally Home Foundation
  • Freedom Fellowship
  • Habitat for Humanity Fort Collins
  • Jesucristo es Mi Casa
  • Royal Family KIDS, Inc.
  • SERVE 6.8 Resource Center
  • Sarah Miles – Timberline Ambassador to Uganda

On the website, you will also find the lists of needed items. Items range in price from $5 to $500 so there is something for everyone on your list. When you are done shopping, you can then click on the donation link and be taken to an easy form to make an online payment.

During the weekend services, there will also be a table in the mall with some of the items and more information about the various ministries being supported.
