Alternative Gift Fair 2013

Wednesday, November 13 – 4:30 p.m. -8:00 p.m. – Fellowship Hall

Christmas is a special season. This year instead of giving more “things” give a gift that will make a difference to service organizations. You will have the opportunity to honor a family member or friend with a gift to a local or international service group. You will receive a gift card for your honoree from the organization that you select.

We have set a minimum donation of $10 to get a gift card. This year’s participating organizations include:

  • Habitat for Humanity,
  • Davidson County Prison Ministry,
  • Cancer Services,
  • CBF Global Missions,
  • Martha Best Children’s Center Scholarship Fund,
  • NC Baptist Children’s Home,
  • FBC Assistance Fund.

You may also enjoy homemade cookies, cakes or candy.  If you enjoy baking pleased consider donating homemade items for the fair.  All profits will go to benefit local missions.  Family and friends would love to be honored with a gift to a local agency or one of the other gifts available.

Habitat for Humanity House 2013

Once again First Baptist Church is going to be involved in a mission project in the community as we work alongside Habitat for Humanity of Lexington. (Or Habitat for Humanity of Lexington Facebook page)  We will be asking for volunteers and contributions. This year’s Alternative Gift Fair will feature Habitat and this house.
