Tired of using plastic to buy more plastic? Then do this year's Christmas shopping at Grace United Methodist Church's 1st Annual Giving Fair!

How it works: 

Grace will set up gift-making stations in the church fellowship hall. Each station will include supplies for you to make gifts that you can then purchase and take home with you. A few examples: dried soup mix (think mason jar with decorative cloth and bow), cookie mix--and whatever else we dream up!

The fair runs from morning to afternoon and all proceeds go to a clean water mission sponsored by the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR). The fair provides the Midtown community with a great opportunity to spend wisely, to make old-fashioned gifts with a personal touch, to enjoy each other's company--and to support an important mission. 

We'll have lots more details in the coming weeks. But until then, put this on your calendar and save all your Christmas shopping for December 15--at Grace!
