the Annual First Church Global Bazaar

will be held Saturday, December 2nd, 2017 from 9am-3pm

Our church basement and Pit Stop garage transform into an international fair trade marketplace. Guests shop for unique international and local items not available in department and big box stores. Everyone enjoys the musical delights of local school choirs. A hearty lunch is served, and shoppers enjoy time around the fire pit roasting marshmallows for s’mores. Something for everyone! The proceeds of the Global Bazaar benefit a wide variety of community development non-profit agencies. Many of the agencies sell goods hand crafted by their participants, others sell fair trade items from the countries where they operate to support their programs. You won't want to miss this opportunity on Saturday, December 2nd, 2017 to purchase unique items from local and international entrepreneurs!

Mark your calendars for December 2, 2017 9:00am to 3:00pm.
