Christmas in July - Alternative Christmas Market
     As part of our Christmas in July Celebration on July 16th, LUMC Missions will host its Second Annual Alternative Christmas Market! 
     The Market will be held in the church fellowship hall (and on the grounds, as needed) and will feature local, regional, national and international faith-based missions and ministries that are advancing the Kingdom by serving the least and the lost. Representatives will be available to share info and answer questions, and gifts - both tangible and virtual - will be available for purchase for everyone on your Christmas list.
     Enjoy a free lunch compliments of the Missions Committee, then browse the marketplace tables for some unique Christmas gifts while you learn more about a variety of needs in our community and worldwide.  We'll also have some winter-themed activities for children available outside.
