By offering an alternative to the consumer frenzy that has taken over the Christmas season. The story is simple: God loves the world and God gave a life-changing gift to the world.
The annual Alternative Christmas Market provides many opportunities to purchase gifts for loved ones that will, in turn, help alleviate human poverty and suffering. Our on-line auction, God’s Bidding, is a wonderful and fun way to participate in compassionate gift-giving.

This is the fifth year that the Alternative Market has included an on-line auction, called “God’s Bidding.” The auction represents gifts/donations from dozens of church members who offer their time, service, talents, or beautiful objects and vacation homes to help raise money for local and international poverty relief. When members, friends and others “win” these items through generous bidding, the money they pay goes not to the donor but to selected projects that help give people immediate relief from desperate situations calused by poverty, and opportunity to move out of poverty.
The goal for God’s Bidding 2013 is $10,000 and the proceeds will be split between the IFC (Inter Faith Council, which supports the underserved in our community) and CWS (Chuch World Service).
