Issaquah Christian Church plans a Christmas fundraiser to support a mission to Uganda next year.
The fundraiser runs from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday at the church, 10328 Issaquah-Hobart Road S.E. Offerings include candles, candy, Tupperware and, of course, holiday trees at the iconic Christmas tree lot.
Fundraiser purchases support a relief mission to Uganda, a war-torn nation in East Africa. The trip is to include construction, dental and medical relief efforts to serve Ugandan orphanages, missionaries and prisons.
Holiday tree sales continue through Dec. 24, Christmas Eve. The lot is open from 10 a.m. – 9 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 9 a.m. – 9 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
Tree sales benefit additional missions, including efforts to build homes in Mexico. Call 392-5848 or visit the church website to learn more.
The church has a long tradition of using holiday fundraisers to pay for mission trips. The annual fireworks sale before Independence Day funds homebuilding projects in Mexico.
