During the festivities after church this Sunday, take time to find the tables for our Alternative Marketplace — a way to use some of your Christmas gift spending to spread love and assistance locally and around the world. This year, we feature these organizations:
- Heifer Project: your purchase of an animal (or share of an animal) can help not only a family but an entire village. Honorary gift cards available.
- Church World Service: Just $10 buys a blanket to be used for warmth or shelter. Take a card to give this gift in honor of your loved one.
- Loaves & Fishes: a gift certificate will be hand lettered and sent to your loved ones, giving the gift of reducing hunger in Hartford.
- ProjectLIGHT: Hartford. “Our own” Lynn Johnson is working with local youth to sell wristband or drawstring bags in support of CreateGlobalHealing.org. See more information at her table
Blessings and gratitude from your Social Action and Mission Committee
