  • Christmas Mission Market

    With the Christmas season upon us, no doubt you are thinking about where to find the perfect gifts for friends

    and family alike. So why choose the Mission Market? Here, you will find meaningful and unique gifts to

    purchase in honor of your loved ones. And, most importantly, your support helps our Mission Partners and

    Friends during these continuing months of global crisis. Plus, you can do your Christmas shopping from the

    comfort of our Church Courtyard or your own house (pajamas optional). It's a win-win-win for all involved!

    This year, on Sunday, December 4, as part of the Community Church Christmas Extravaganza, we will be hosting an in-person Mission Market! Representatives from African Team Ministries, Angel Interfaith Network, Friends in Deed, Icthus, La Casa Community Center, Ministry of Hope, My Refuge House, Restoring Hope & Union Station of Pasadena will all be present. If you prefer in-person shopping, we encourage you to join us starting at 3:30 P.M., where you can meet the people behind these organizations, submit your Order Form, pick-up gift acknowledgement cards, and purchase gifts in the form of merchandise directly from them. This physical marketplace will be accompanied by our annual Christmas Concert, Family Advent Workshop & Tree

    Lighting, followed by a festive Sunday Supper with a Cookie Exchange. 

    We hope to see you there!
