Spirit of Christmas Bazaar

Spirit of Christmas Bazaar 

Calling all artists, crafters, sewers, woodworkers, etc. 

It’s time to get creative! 

The Spirit of Christmas Bazaar is only 8 weeks away! 

Saturday, November 10th 

We need everyone’s help to be able to continue 

the many missions we’ve been funding for many years. 

Thank you for your support! 

If you have questions, please call Kay Gaudette, Kim Gibson or Sharon Simons 

Spirit of Christmas RAFFLE 

Crafters and artisans, we want to remind you that larger hand-crafted items often sell better through the Spirit of Christmas raffle that runs during the weeks leading up to the bazaar. If you would like to donate an item to the raffle, please notify Nancy Evans (546-2817) or Terri Wisniak (546-2863) no later than Wednesday, September 26, to be included on the raffle ticket printing. Your finished project should then be delivered to the church by Sunday, Octo-ber 7, for display during the raffle ticket sales period, Oct. 7 – Nov. 10. You do not need to price your item as the number of ticket sales will determine the money that is raised from your donation. Thank you!

Let’s Talk Coffee!

For several years Immanuel has supported the Lutheran World Relief Coffee Project which is a partnership between LWR and Equal Exchange  (Which seeks greater equity in international trade). Farmers in several countries support themselves and help their communities by selling coffee they grow on small plots of land. The coffee is organic (no chemicals) and no rain forests are destroyed. Immanuel supports this mission by using the coffee for all events and for fellowship time on Sundays. It is equally available for your purchase, too.

This great coffee comes in either whole bean or grind, regular or decaf, and in 3 different roasts; in 12 and 16 oz sizes. An explanation of the roasts is available in the coffee cabinet. Price comparisons show that the coffee competes well with other organize and specialty coffees available in the area.

Using this Fair Trade coffee provides continued support to LWR in their efforts to help people become self-sustaining and financial contributors in their own communities. You are encouraged to support these small farmers by trying our the coffees and discovering your favorites.

See you around the coffee cabinet@
