Saturday, November 11, 2017
Since its beginning nearly 60 years ago, members of Highland Presbyterian Church have been alive in service to local and global missions. Its 7th annual Mission Bazaar on Saturday, November 11, 2017 from 9 am to 2 pm will afford the community an opportunity to support a selection of missions—and begin their Christmas shopping.
This year shoppers will have a special treat. Serenading them with Peruvian music throughout their shopping experience will be a combo of Latin American musicians led by church’s associate pastor of mission and family ministries, the Rev. Dr. Noé Juárez. Also entertaining
shoppers will be musicians from Lighthouse Imani Presbyterian Church, a ministry of new Americans from East Africa who worship at Highland, and Dr. Dan Droz on keyboard.
Patrons at the Mission Bazaar will have an eclectic array of handcrafted gift possibilities created by and/or benefiting local and international initiatives. On hand will be fairly traded creations from Ten Thousand Villages, quilts and quilted accessories from Highland’s quilting ministry,
gifts created by Ghanaian school students, jewelry and more from Water Street Mission’s Revolution social enterprise and hand knit baby ware from Global Baby Steps.
Breakfast will also be offered from 9 to 10:30 am. Homemade baked oatmeal, French toast casserole and sausages will be served, along with hot tea and coffee. A hearty lunch menu will offer homemade chicken corn soup and chili, along with hot dogs and drinks, from 11 am to 1 pm. Takeout soups and chili, home baked goods and house plants will also be on sale.
Also participating will be the Heifer International, Hope International and North Star Initiative. A silent auction will benefit Presbyterian Disaster Services and its rebuilding ministry for the hurricane-ravaged communities of Texas, Florida, the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. Join us!
