Are you wondering "What is an Alternative Christmas Gift Market?
It is a marketplace where people can shop for "virtual gifts as an alternative to traditional Christmas gifts. What are these gifts? They are the services and items provided by participating agencies to people in need that are made possible by your donations to these agencies in honor of those you care about and love. Westminster's Alternative Christmas Gift Market is a marketplace where people can enjoy a special kind of Christmas shopping and discover the joy of giving gifts that spread hope and the good news of Jesus's birth. Enjoy your shopping while listening to music and visiting with Westminster friends without all of the commercialism of our world. We will continue selling gifts in the Parlor on December 11 and 18.
Have you been thinking about discovering your mission?
Westminster has hosted this event annually since 2008 not only with the hope of providing a different kind of Christmas "shopping experience but also as a time for members to meet with representatives of mission agencies to learn what these groups do and about service opportunities available with them. Have you taken Disciple, identified your gifts and not explored your mission any further? Or are you interested in being more active in serving others but are not sure just how to do it? Please read in the brochure about service opportunities available with these agencies and talk with their representatives to learn how your gifts may be utilized by them.
Since 2008, Westminster's Alternative Christmas Gift Market has raised nearly $225,000 in financial support to local, national, and international agencies that reach out to those in need.You may make a copy of the Order form and bring the completed form to the market to have your order filled. Also, you may leave a completed form in the box in the office and your order will be returned to you by mail in two to three days.
