Join us this year VIRTUALLY for our annual Shopping with a Purpose event, which coincides with our Bethel Women Christmas Gathering (December 5).
Our shopping event will be from December 4-6. You may shop anytime during those 3 days from the comfort of your home! This is not your typical Christmas shopping event. All of our “vendors” are mission-based – meaning they are a ministry/charity or they’ve chosen to donate to one! This is an amazing opportunity to purchase something for Christmas that has such great meaning and purpose behind it. We hope you can join us in thinking a little differently about gift giving this year!
Contact Amy for more information.
