We – Ascension Fair Trade – send out a big, really, really big “THANK YOU” to all of you wonderful Ascension Fair Traders & to our wonderful Ascension Community for your long & strong support of Fair Trade.
Ascension’s Global Ministries Team offers Fair Trade products at sale events periodically throughout the ministry year. These events feature coffee, tea, nuts, cocoa and chocolate from Equal Exchange and coffee from LWR/Thrive Farmers Market. If you missed an event and want to place a special order or need to restock your supply contact our team at .
Fair Trade farmers and artisans are more than producers or suppliers. They are partners. We join with Fair Trade in celebrating Fair Trade partnerships promoting human, economic and environmental justice.
In our Baptism services, the congregation pledges to “help children grow in the Christian faith and life” by teaching them “to care for others and the world God made, and (to) work for justice and peace.” Thank you for teaching by your example.
