TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Christ Presbyterian Church's annual Christmas Mission Market is back, but with a twist.

Since the church is still doing virtual worship, Reverend Sheldon Steen said he wanted to make sure to hold the event safely.

This year, it will be outside on the church property with eleven nonprofits tabling to showcase their work and raise money.

The nonprofits featured include, ECHO, UKirk, In the Carpenter's Footsteps, Volunteers of America, Porch de Salomon, Thornwell, Refuge House, Heifer Project, St. Francis Wildlife Refuge, Habitat for Humanity and Good News Outreach.

People can also enjoy baked goods, pony rides and live music.

With the struggles many nonprofits have faced from the pandemic, the church wanted to make sure they kept the event going to help support their work.

"At this time of year, as we are all scrabbling to buy Christmas presents for loved ones and things like that, we always want to have an emphasis on spending our money wisely and doing, so to support great nonprofits and ministries that do really great work," Reverend Steen said.

The event starts today at 10 a.m. at 2317 Bannerman Rd Tallahassee, FL 32312 and will go until 2 p.m.
