Alternative Giving Bazaar

Sundays, December 8 & 15
Fellowship Hall Following the 11AM Service

The Alternative Giving Bazaar provides a great opportunity to honor friends and family by giving gifts in their names to any of almost two dozen organizations supported by the Local, National and International Mission Committees at Westminster. Shopping at the Alternative Giving Bazaar means you can choose gifts that will make an important difference in helping people in our community, our nation and around the world. One purchase gives two gifts: one, to meet a need of a person, family, or group of people you don’t know; the other to honor your family, friend, co-worker or neighbor.

Your gifts to local organizations can help support local families through ALIVE, feed a Meals on Wheels client, allow Just Neighbors to assist refugees, or purchase provisions for Carpenter’s Shelter residents. Nationally and internationally, gifts can support our friends at the Spirit Lake Indian Reservation in North Dakota, or support the United Orphanage & Academy in Moi’s Bridge, Kenya.
