Christ Market 2016 ChristMarket at Wallingford Presbyterian Church offers Christmas shoppers the opportunity to give much to those who have little. More than a dozen organizations and programs that serve those in need locally, regionally, and around the world, will be on display. Donate and receive a delightful card explaining your “non-traditional” gift to your friends, family, co-workers, or neighbors. A great way to put the Spirit of the Season to good use.

ChristMarket,  has been hugely successful in the past, providing very meaningful alternatives to traditional Christmas giving while raising awareness of the needs of others AND raising significant funds to address those needs. Last year, shoppers donated $4153 to the fourteen organizations and programs. Our Church matched this dollar for dollar through the Mission and Service funds for a total gifting of $8306.

ChristMarket will be open in the Fellowship Hall immediately after worship on November 26th, December 3th, December 10th, and December 17thEach cause/organization will have an interpretative poster and an information station in the Fellowship Hall…stroll through the “market”, check out the opportunities, then fill out your shopping form (available in the Hall) and settle up with the cashiers.  You will receive a corresponding card and envelope for each donation. Checks and cash are accepted.
