International Christmas Market

 

Merchandise     Shares 

The 2020 Market has officially concluded, but vendors are still selling and shares supporting non-profit programs are still available. Your gifts give life to others with purchases of fair-trade crafts, textiles, housewares, as well as shares of local and international non-profit agencies that improve the lives of those they serve.

We hope that you will take this opportunity to browse the vendor links and non-profit share options to order beautiful items and honorary/memorial gifts for your family and friends for the holidays. All dollars spent through our International Christmas Market go beyond FUMCR to help families and individuals achieve independence and rise from poverty.
