GPC’s annual Mission Market and Fair is an event to showcase GPC’s mission partners, invite members to give of their time, energy, and money, and provide an opportunity to do some holiday shopping with social good. At the market, you’ll get to know our mission partners like Excel Academy and Remember Niger and make a personal connection with organizations that GPC’s mission budget supports. Many of our mission partners will have items to sell, like knit hats and scarves made by the members of the Georgetown Ministry Center. Some items for sale will benefit people around the world, like olive oil that goes to ministries of peace in Palestine.
In 2018, GPC’s budget set aside and gave $90,000 to our mission partners and to support the work of ministries like the Georgetown Sunday Dinners. In addition, members have given thousands in donations in the form of money and meals. In other words, GPC makes a big impact! On November 18th and December 2nd, celebrate that impact. More importantly, we celebrate a child who was born to love us, save us, and call us to give our lives for one another in service.
What better way to celebrate Advent and Christmas than to give generously?
