Give Hope

The International Christmas Market is a unique shopping experience that provides a different way to remember and honor family and friends during the Christmas season. Your dollars spent at this Market GIVE HOPE and a chance at a better way of life for people in communities around the world. Every dollar spent at the Market will go outside this church to assist others as they work to provide clothing, shelter, food, and education for themselves and their families. None of the money raised stays within the budget or operating funds of First United Methodist Church Richardson.
