As you plan your Christmas shopping, please consider SMPC's annual Alternative Gift Market opening Sunday, December 2 in the halls of the Sanctuary.

This is a wonderful opportunity for year end giving, honoring family and friends with any number of creative and USEFUL things such as giving medical supplies to our Haiti mission (OFCB Ministries, Bayonnais), or by providing beds/essential furniture and bed kits (Beds For Kids) to to children of families in need, these are just a couple of examples represented in our catalog distributed earlier this month.

Those with children, please be sure to visit our Children's Market, an opportunity to teach your child about giving back.

Don't forget your checkbook (cash and credit cards are also accepted).

Commemorating WWl....Tea Party Time

Last Christmas in Paris By Hazel Gaynor and Heather Webb F

August 1914. England is at war. As Evie Elliott watches her brother, Will, and his best friend, Thomas Harding, depart for the front. She believes—as everyone does—that it will be over by Christmas, when the trio plan to celebrate among the cafes of Paris. Frustrated by life as a privileged young lady, Evie longs to play a part in the conflict, and as Thomas struggles with the realities of war, he faces battles back home where War Office regulations on reporting cause trouble at his father’s business. Through letters, Evie and Thomas share their hopes and fears—and grow fonder from afar.
