The Mission Market

 

The Mission Market of First Presbyterian Church is located on the second floor, Room 200, next to the James Park Room. Sponsored by the Global Mission Committee, The Mission Market features fair trade crafts and foods from around the world.

At The Mission Market you will find old favorites such as Olive Branch Olive Oil, fair trade coffee, tea and chocolate, global crafts and the opportunity to support Heifer Project International and Keep Hope Alive olive trees. New this year will be Out of the Blue granola from a Tennessee group, a new Congo Coffee that benefits Panzi Hospital (a mission partner of the Presbyterian church (USA) in the DRC), as well as many new products from SERRV and Partners for Just Trade and the Presbyterian Women’s cookbook.

Since The Mission Market will be an ongoing endeavor, sales tax will be charged on purchases. The small profit made on these sales will underwrite the market’s expenses and begin a fund to help emerging craft groups of our mission partners in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
