Material Girls began in February, 2012 to make gifts for the Children’s Christmas Bazaar, held during Hometown Holidays.
Since that time, four additional bazaars have been added to their schedule. The Thursday before the Children’s Christmas Bazaar, they will host a bazaar for children and youth with special needs. On the Sunday, following the two bazaars, the congregation will be able to shop between worship services and at night before/after the Hometown Holiday Concerts. During the Community Breakfast, families participating in the paper products program will be invited to shop at no cost.
Additionally, the group often makes short term projects for the church or supported charities. 
The Purpose Statement for Materials Girls:
  • Material Girls is an organization for women who strive to serve God by serving others. All women are warmly welcomed and offered friendship, fellowship, and the opportunity to learn new crafting skills and participate in meaningful mission activities.
  • Material Girls will make gifts and will help organize four shopping opportunities during the first two weeks in December
  • Material Girls will use bazaar profits to support Faith In Action.
