This year, the Merry Market again will operate on Covid-19 protocols. Johns Creek has set a goal of providing for 450 children with 1800 gifts. One Child equals 4 gifts – 3 toys and 1 item of clothing.

JCUMC has its own Sign-Up Genius with gift suggestions and a link to the Merry Market registry. You can buy one, two, or 50 gifts online, and the registry is set up to automatically ship the gifts directly to the Merry Market. If you prefer to provide your own shipping information, the gifts will ship to your address. You can then deliver the gifts to Natalie Spradling at the church office through December 5th.  Or contact us by email: whaislip@aol.com  or phone: 678-480-1415. We will make arrangements to collect your gifts and deliver them to the Merry Market. Finally, you will be able to drop off gifts on Sunday, November 21st or November 28th in the Narthex.
