By ERIN COGGINS
MADISON – The Madison Methodist Women will host their inaugural Gifts of Grace Marketplace on Saturday, Feb. 18 at the church in Historic Downtown Madison.
The event, open from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m., will feature local vendors offering items for spring gift-giving and decorating.
“We have a variety of vendors from across the area, including soap and candle makers, talented woodworkers, crafters in fabric, pottery, mosaics and more,” president of the Madison Methodist Women, Carol Moats said. “Homemade baked good and beautiful plants will also be available.”
Visitors can also treat themselves to lunch in the Charity Café, featuring homemade soups and bakery items prepared by church members.
“Visitors can expect to do some shopping and sit for a leisurely lunch during a shopping break,” Moats said. “There will also be an opportunity to purchase tickets to win prizes from our participating vendors.”
Proceeds from vendor fees, the café and raffle items, will benefit Madison Methodist Women’s missions which include various local non-profits.
“The missions we support include 305 Eighth Street, Owens House and Lincoln Academy,” Moats said. “We also fund our children’s youth and preschool ministries at our church.”
