After our wonderful Day of Sharing & Giving last Sunday, we are just a little over $1700 short of the price of our tickets! We’ve had several people ask if the Mission Store items will be available offline again in the weeks to come, so we will continue to have items on display for the next couple of weeks or until we can buy our tickets. We’ll be moving the tables to the hallway by the offices (RCC). A donation jar will also be available.
We’ve also had a wonderful fundraising offer from Monica McMullen. She will be hosting a Premier Jewelry Fundraiser for us after 2nd Service on Sunday, March 29. Click here to see all the details! So many of you enjoy these parties. This one lets you can support missions at the same time!
For several years now, I [Rachel] have been making handmade bracelets as a fund-raiser for our mission work. It has done well to help us cover the cost of our airfare and expenses, but sales are slowing down (I think people are getting tired of bracelets). This year we are expanding the store to include other items such as:
- other types of jewelry (necklaces, lanyards, etc.)
- workshops – come learn how to make jewelry yourself!
- original artwork by Ben and Anna
- gift certificates for local businesses
- gift basket collections
- handcrafted furniture
- collectors’ items
At the time of this post, all that is in the store is jewelry related. But these other things are coming soon! We also hope to display the store items for purchase offline for those who like to see things in person. The details of that are still being worked out, but watch for announcements! We hope you will find something you love for yourself or to give as a gift. So what are you waiting for? Go shopping!
