16th Annual Global Holiday Faire a Huge Success!

On Saturday December 7th, First Christian Church hosted the 16th Annual Global Holiday Faire, an ecumenical gift faire that raises money for non-profit organizations in our own community and around the world.  With the help of our friends at Holy Family Catholic Church, Community Presbyterian Church, The First Church of the Nazarene, St. Vincent's Catholic Church and St. Dominic's Catholic Church, we raised over $13,400 for 18 different non-profit organizations.  That is the most we have ever raised in a single year!  The day was full of joy and good cheer as the sounds of choirs and musicians filled the air.  We had a special visit from Santa Claus.  We estimate more shoppers than ever came to the Faire.  It was a great day all around and we are very proud of the work that this special ecumenical effort does every year. 

The organizing committee would like to thank everyone who helped to make the Faire such a great success - to all those who donated or baked items to sell, who set up, who worked the Faire itself, who cleaned up afterwards, who spread the word, who entertained the customers, and of course who came and shopped! 

Remember, the Global Holiday Faire happens the first Saturday of December, so mark your calendars now for the 17th Annual Faire next year!  For more info on the Faire click Here.  For more pictures of this and past Faires click Here.
