Alternative Gift Fair

Get ahead of the shopping rush by stopping in the parlor after all services on Sundays, Dec. 8, 15, and 22 to see the beautiful handmade crafts from the women of UPAVIM who live on the outskirts of Guatemala City. There will be Christmas ornaments, jewelry, kitchen accessories, and much more. The sale of these crafts helps UPAVIM members build better lives for themselves and their community by funding a school, library, clinic, bakery, and soy milk production.

There will also be a table for Heifer gifts. Heifer International works with farming communities around the world to find sustainable solutions to end hunger and poverty. You can pick up a daily calendar and giving box to make it a family giving project for Advent or make a one-time contribution.
