This Fall, in conjunction with the Holiday Open House downtown, First Baptist will be hosting Lydia’s Market! November 1-4 our Atrium will literally become a market where we will offer goods and products created by those who live in poverty as well as those with limited economic opportunity. These products are crafted both close to home and around the globe, and allow the artisans to support themselves and their families in a sustainable way! These ministries which educate and empower people in some of the most difficult corners of our world help people use their God-given gifts and skills to create self-sustaining and consistent incomes! This is going to be a BIG event in the life of our church and community! You will be amazed by some of the products we will have available. In the coming weeks keep your eyes peeled for products in the Library as well as in the Fellowship Hall on Wednesday nights! What if your purchase at Lydia’s Market could truly empower a family in the name of Christ! What an incredible opportunity for us to be a part of as the people of God!
