On the morning of November 27th, our Moments for Moms ministry hosted a Christmas Market featuring local vendors that were almost entirely made up of young moms from our community. We hosted 16 different small businesses, offered complimentary childcare and refreshments, complete with a Christmas coffee bar! A warm and welcoming environment was enjoyed by all, and the room was filled with new faces and unchurched women from Ladner and Tsawwassen, many of whom had never been to South Delta Baptist before. One new attendee commented, "I can't believe this is free. Why would the church do this for people who don't go here?" This then gave us the opportunity to explain the heart of our ministry, to bless the moms of this community in a practical way, all because we love Jesus and want to show His love to them.
Our Moments for Moms team was thrilled with the turnout and the number of new women we were able to connect with. We know that small seeds were planted through face-to-face interactions and our hope is for the new women to return and engage in our upcoming events in the new year. Thank you to all the volunteers who helped to make this such a successful morning!
