Alternative Christmas Market
"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. On "Giving Tuesday," December 1, over fifty Immanuel members and friends gathered for this year's online “alternative” Alternative Christmas Market. The one hour program included ten (3-5 minute) panel presentations from each of our local participating organizations about their work and how our gifts will be used to help others.

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.
*Although everyone can use the online order system, it may be particularly convenient for Immanuel members and friends who already make gifts and pledge payments online! Just use your login and password and you're ready to go!
