Fair Trade Fair and Craft show returns to Peace Lutheran Church
On Sunday, November 6, 2016, we welcome you to a world of hand-made, fair trade specialty gifts, including stone and wood carvings, baskets, jewelry, toys, musical instruments, coffee/tea, chocolate, and more.
Fair trade retailers are committed to social justice and supporting artisans in developing countries through fair wages, healthy working conditions, environmental sustainability, respect for cultural identity, and customer education. Fair Trade goods are just that. Fair. From far-away farms to your shopping cart, products that bear the Fair Trade certified logo come from farmers and workers who are justly compensated.
Craft items from crafters from our congregation will also be available!
Peace Lutheran invites everyone to shop at our Fair Trade Fair and craft sale on Sunday November 6th from 11 am to 2 pm. Coffee and refreshments will be served. There will be many unique gift items as well as fair trade chocolate and coffee available for purchase. By spreading the mission of fair trade to provide artisan groups in developing countries a fair income, we are helping to provide education and health care for these artisans and their families.

Trick or Trunk is a fun evening of special trick or treating in our parking lot, hosted by families of the Peace Lutheran congregation. Cars line the parking lot out front with their decorated trunks open, displaying Halloween pumpkins, ghosts, spiders, webs and candy. Owners of various decorated trunks dress in costumes for the event and prizes are awarded.
Karen Jorgensen (The green M & M) serves as co-chairperson of the event with Colleen Lemke, both members of the church, “A safe haven for the community’s children” is the way Karen Jorgensen describes the event. And, this is to way to involve people of Peace in its community and invite community members to get to know us. In addition to the treats from the open trunks in the parking lot, trick or treaters will have the opportunity to go into the church to warm up and enjoy cider and cookies. Come and join the fun.
