Each year members and friends of the church come together to make craft items and baked goods which will be sold at the annual Holiday Market on the second Saturday of November.
An added attraction that morning is the pancake breakfast and the opportunity to buy raffle tickets on one or more special items. All veterans eat free!
Our Market is unique in that 100% of the proceeds are used to help families in our community who may be in need of a little extra help. Each year we have been able to help up to 12 families during the Christmas season. Working in coordination with the Kernersville school system, we provide Christmas presents and gift certificates to families who may not have been able to celebrate Christmas otherwise.
In addition to the support at Christmas, the proceeds from the Holiday Market have also been used throughout the year to meet special needs.
Some examples include: furnace repair and heating oil so the main source of heat was not the oven with the door open; a scholarship to sponsor a young man to a summer music camp; helped bring property taxes up to date in order for the property to qualify for a home repair grant; and the Smart Start program at the YMCA.
