Global Mission

Because Jesus stood with the marginalized, Grace Church is committed to justice for those suffering around the world. We have embraced the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals as one way to address global inequities, and our commitment is reflected in our various mission activities throughout the year.

Alternative Gifts Market AND Crafts Fair

Held yearly on the weekend before Thanksgiving, shoppers have opportunities to donate to a variety of local and international projects providing supplies, support and hope to people in need. Cards describing items purchased can be given as gifts during the holidays and beyond. Fair traded food items, jewelry and crafts from cottage industries in developing countries are also sold at the market.

All income from the market is forwarded to nonprofit relief and development agencies or craft cooperatives.
