To kick off our activities during the Season of Advent, BPC is having a combined Advent Workshop and Alternative Gift Fair on Sunday, December 2nd during the 9am Sunday School hour in the Fellowship Hall. The workshop will include a coloring poster that once complete, will be displayed, a wooden nativity project for each family, a felt finger puppet station complete with a script to go along with your puppets, and an Advent Devotional Table with a variety of options for all ages. You will also have the opportunity to make an Advent Wreath for $10.
The Alternative Gift Fair will include items made by the KnitWits and Quilters with all the funds going to the Women’s Resource Center. Presbyterian Women (PW) will be offering eight alternative gift giving opportunities. You will be able to donate to Bread for the World, Protestant Center for Pastoral Studies in Central America (CEDEPCA), End Child Prostitution and Trafficking (ECPAT-USA), Malawi, Micah’s Backpack, To Our House, UKirk Campus Ministry of VT, and Valley Interfaith Child Care Center (VICCC). Each donation comes with a card. Click the link below for more information about the organizations listed and to see some of the items that will be available from the KnitWits and Quilters.
Not able to make it on December 2nd? The Alternative Gift Fair will also take place on Sunday, December 9th in the Gathering Space before and after worship.
