"A Different Way To Do Christmas"

Enjoy a special kind of shopping this Christmas,

and discover the joy of giving gifts

that spread the good news of

Jesus' birth in a hungry and hurting world.



     Since 1995, Immanuel Church has offered a different way to do Christmas, through our annual Alternative Christmas Market.  This year, an “alternative” Alternative Christmas Market is planned online for Giving Tuesday, December 1.  Join us at 7:00 p.m., as we gather on Zoom for a panel presentation.  Each of the participating organizations will give a brief (3-5 minute) presentation about their work and how our gifts will be used to help others.

Following the presentations, participants will have a chance to join the presenters in small groups for questions and to gather more information. Then "purchase" gifts from the participating agencies and organizations using the links below.

Gift (greeting) cards are recommended for sharing and interpreting your gift.  Each gift card will include a place for you to fill in the name of the gift and organization and also an insert to describe the organization being supported by the gift.  Gift cards will be mailed out in plenty of time for Christmas for all orders received in the church office by December 11.
