Alternative Gift Market

                  Shop with all your heart!

What symbol best sums up the Christmas  season?     A tree? A star?

How about a heart?  ♥  Standing above all the decorations and celebrations of the holiday is the simple message: God has a heart for the world! Most every kid in Sunday School learns the key Christmas verse: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him will have everlasting life.

The inspiration of Christmas rings loud and clear: every human being, and really every creature and eco-system, has a place in God’s heart of love. He treasures each and every one, and He longs for each to know the fullness of life that comes through the life, death and resurrection of His Son, Jesus. God so loved that He gave. He has a heart for the world, a heart that came to earth with hands that fed the hungry and healed the sick, hands that lifted people up who had been beaten down.

That’s the heart of Christmas, and it is the heart of our Alternative Christmas Market. In this catalogue you’ll meet mission partners all over the world who are the hands and feet of Jesus today, extending life-giving opportunities to thousands of people and thousands of square miles of God’s creation. Here you’ll find Christmas gifts that will warm the hearts of those on your gift list while at the same time uplifting the lives of people and creatures who are on the heart of God.

So shop with your heart!  

Wishing you and yours a  filled 2013.
