Shop the world in one convenient spot...

the Annual First Church Global Bazaar

was held Saturday, December 3rd, 2016 from 9am-3pm

Our church basement and Pit Stop garage transformed into an international fair trade marketplace. Guests shopped for unique international and local items not available in department and big box stores. Everyone enjoyed the musical delights of 3 local school choirs. A hearty soup lunch was served, and shoppers enjoyed 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 sold goods hand crafted by their participants, others sold fair trade items from the countries where they operate to support their programs. You won't want to miss the opportunity next year to purchase unique items from local and international entrepreneurs!

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