Art & Gift Market

6th Annual Art & Gift Market

Join us on Saturday, November 4, for the 6th Annual Art & Gift Market at Apex UMC from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Crossroads and the CLC. This event will feature artists and vendors offering handcrafted gifts, one-of-a-kind pieces of art, and fair-trade products for sale. Start the day in Crossroads with a hot cup of fair-trade coffee and a goodie from the youth bake sale. Then you can sip and stroll your way through Crossroads and the CLC and learn about several impactful mission efforts our congregation supports, then purchase amazing, handcrafted items from local artists. We call this shopping with a purpose, or better put, gifts from the heart. It’s a great place to get your Christmas shopping done, while supporting our church missions.

After all the shopping, you’ll be hungry, so plan on eating at the Market! Fiesta Christiana will be making lunches again this year!  They will have tacos, drinks and desserts for sale.

In addition to the booths of over 40 amazing artisans, the Art & Gift Market is home to a spectacular SILENT AUCTION. Wondering what’s in store for this year? Well, there are many surprises ahead, but you can count on wonderful items donated by local and regional businesses and artisans, as well as friends and family of the church, including event and destination tickets, travel adventures, gifts, services, and gift cards. Proceeds of the auction go directly to missions, so visit, bid and share often!

Auction site: Bidding opens on October 22nd and will be open through November 4, closing at 2 p.m. Items must be picked up at AUMC between 2:30 and 4 p.m. on Market Day. For more information on the Art and Gift Market, contact Pam Cloer at or Anne Harrison at
