Habitat for Humanity Craft Show
“To everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven.” Ecclesiastes 3:1
Saturday, April 7, 2018
Last year was our 22nd Habitat for Humanity Craft Show at Christ the Lord Lutheran Church. Since 1995, we have raised about $60,000 for Habitat for Humanity. The number of friendships we have fostered over the years are a true godsend to our church, fellow crafters, and Habitat for Humanity. It has been our joy and privilege to put together a craft show to showcase your talents and raise money for a good cause. We thank you for your continued support over the years.
Yet, we have come to a new portion of our journey with God and have realized the 2017 craft show was our final one. Our circumstances have changed, and, after much discussion, we decided we could no longer continue with the craft show. Know that this decision did not come easily and that it was made with a heavy heart.
Even though we are not continuing our show, there is another craft show opportunity we’d like to recommend. Bethany Lutheran Church in Batavia had their first show last year (as we did so long ago). They are ready to grow in their efforts. Their show is scheduled for Sat., Nov. 10th from 9:00 am. to 3:00 pm. They donate all show proceeds to Mutual Ground: a Domestic Violence Shelter. If you would be interested in participating in their show, you can contact their church office at email@example.com.
We praise God for the blessing you have been to us and for his loving guidance going forward. What a joy to serve the Lord for these years. May He lead all of us to even greater opportunities to serve.
