'Alternative' Christmas Fair

Join us for an Online Christmas Fair – that is a little different. 

This Christmas season, review and 'shop' for opportunities to donate and give to those in need in our community and around the world!

Consider giving a Christmas Gift to friends or family this year: a donation in their name to a ministry they support, or a livestock purchase in a 3rd world country for people in need. The 'Alternative' Christmas Fair provides an opportunity to be generous and creative with your Christmas Gift Giving.

Give Through Ministries of Mount of Olives Church

Donations and purchases support people in our community and around the world. 

These programs and ministries are supported by volunteers  and donations from Mount of Olives each Christmas and throughout the year.

"But the angel said to them, 'Do not be afraid; for see—I am bringing you good news of great joy for all the people: to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign for you: you will find a child wrapped in bands of cloth and lying in a manger.' And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God and saying, 'Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace among those whom he favors!'" - Luke 2:10-14
