 Christmas Bazaar

Buda UMC – Buda, TX –Child-With-Gift-Christian-Stock-Images-300x200

Saturday, November 22nd from 8am to 2pm

All items donated for sale should be new handmade items. Other items can also be donated for the silent auction.

This year we also plan to have a “fishing pond” where children can pay a quarter to fish and receive a small inexpensive item on the end of a pole.

Items already underway include Christmas Card Holders, trinket/jewelry boxes, jewelry, and quilted hot pads and a beautiful wall hanging.



Gifts of Hope, Saint John’s UMC (Austin) Alternative Gift Market, is slated for Saturday, December 6 and Sunday, December 7. Two of the most popular booths at the Market are the Saint John’s Mission Booth and the Bake Shop. Once again, all bakers and crafters are called into action! For more information about providing craft items for the Market, please e-mail Nancy Williams at

If you love to bake, The Bake Shop may be the perfect way for you to contribute. Please consider sharing your specialty with Market shoppers. For more information about the Bake Shop, email Eva Jordan at
