Don’t forget the November 11 and 12 Artisan Fair and Bazaar. We have 25 local artisans here at Saint John’s selling handmade items including woodcrafts, pottery, jewelry, textiles and fine cuisine. The Heseders (Saint John’s “hands-on” mission team) will also be selling crafts collected from Haiti, Peru and Tanzania. Come for the sale, getting a start on holiday shopping, and come for the live music, door prizes, bake sale and silent auction. Breakfast, lunch and snacks will be available throughout the day.
The booth fees and proceeds from Saint John’s sales will support the local and international work of the Heseders.

“Hesed” is a Hebrew word that means “kindness,” “mercy,” “loyalty,” “loving-kindness” or “steadfastness.” It’s the way God intends us to live together—a “love your neighbor as yourself,” active, selfless, sacrificial, caring-for-one-another brand of living contradictory to our fallen natures. The “Heseders” are continually looking to work together to share some small measure of God’s extraordinary love. Won’t you join us?
