The United Methodist Women’s 38th Annual Holiday Marketplace will be held in the Coleman Memorial Gymnasium on Saturday, November 9 from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and Sunday, November 10 from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Come and shop for handmade crafts, goodies, and gifts for all your friends and family. There will be over 13 shops for you to do all of your holiday shopping at great prices! Lunch will be available for purchase. There will even be a special “Kids Zone” including pictures with Santa, crafts, and kids shop for their families (on Saturday only).
This is a fun event to get you in the holiday spirit while you shop for items at great prices!
Here are several ways to support the St. Luke’s mission work:
DONATE BAKED ITEMS
You can support the mission work of St. Luke’s by donating a baked item to sell at the Marketplace Sweet Shop.
Be creative!! Donate pies, cakes, breads, muffins, cookies, brownies and other treats for the UMW Holiday Marketplace. Homemade, if possible, but all bakery items are welcome. Please place items in disposable containers and mark if there are nuts in the item. Items can be creatively displayed and packaged, if desired.
Drop off donations at the designated table in the Santos Welcome Hall on Friday, November 8 from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. or by 8:30 a.m. in the Coleman Memorial Gymnasium on Saturday, November 9. All proceeds from the Marketplace will go to missions and charities (locally, nationally and internationally).
DONATE A GIFT CARD
What else can you do to support the Marketplace? Donate a gift card, merchandise or certificates for services for the Giving Tree. You, your business, your small group, your Cluster Group, your ministry area, your family, your friends, anyone can donate a gift card in any denomination ($50 and $100 gift cards are especially helpful). Gift cards will be sold at the Giving Tree shop during the Marketplace. Click here to learn more about giving gift cards to the Bazaar.
Remember, all of your donations ultimately benefit those in need within our church, our community, our city, our state, our country, and around the world. All proceeds from the Marketplace go to support the missions.
There are many ways to support the Marketplace, including help with set-up on Tuesday, November 5 through Friday, November 8, along with opportunities to help on Saturday, November 9 and Sunday, November 10 for the Marketplace. If you would like to join us on any of those days, please contact Peggy Caverly at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 407.876.4991, ext. 285 for more information on volunteer opportunities.
