We are called to empower all God's people through a sustainable source of income by offering their hand-crafted goods at Lydia's Market, a ministry of First Baptist Church.
Every fall, in conjunction with the Holiday Open House downtown, First Baptist hosts Lydia’s Market! Our Atrium becomes a market where we offer responsibly sourced goods and products created by those who live in poverty or with limited economic opportunity. These products are crafted both close to home and around the globe, and their sales allow the artisans to support themselves and their families in a sustainable way. These ministries educate and empower people in some of the most difficult corners of our world, helping people use their God-given gifts and skills to create self-sustaining and consistent incomes! This has become a BIG event in the life of our church and community! You will be amazed by some of the products we will have available. In the coming weeks keep your eyes peeled for products in the Library as well as in the Fellowship Hall on Wednesday nights! Your purchase at Lydia’s Market will help to truly empower a family in the name of Christ! What an incredible opportunity for us to be a part of as the people of God!
Here is a list of vendors who will be featured in Lydia's Market. Check out their websites for more information on the crafts and the mission behind the crafts:
