Stuffed Artichoke Bottoms

Please save the date for an Old Fashion Christmas Bazaar to be held at

Bethel Presbyterian Church on December 9, 2023, from 9:00 am till 3:00 pm.

As we prepare for Christmas many of us strive to find that unique, special gift that will let people know how special they are. Mark your calendars for Saturday, December 9th to attend an Old Fashion Christmas Bazaar to be held at Bethel Presbyterian Church located at 19920 Bethel Church Road, Cornelius, NC from 9:00 am till 3:00 pm.

What’s special about this bazaar?

Ok you say, I have been to many events such as this one. What makes this one different. I believe it has to do with two things. First, the two main vendors started selling their custom-made products several years ago, donating all their proceeds to the Children’ Hope Alliance. They have done this for the last couple of years and the church decided to expand to the community. (Next week we will be publishing another article detailing the back stories of these fine folks, Nanette Bennett, and Olen Persons.)

Port-A-Pit of Statesville

In addition to the bazaar, Bethel Presbyterian Church will be selling Port-A-Pit of Statesville chicken meals from 11:30 till 2:00 with pre-sold tickets. If interested in lunch, you should reserve tickets at (There will be a few extra meals available on a first-come, first-served basis)

Proceeds to benefit Children’s Hope Alliance

Children’s Hope Alliance has hundreds of years of experience helping children and families in need–dating back to the late 1800s. In April of 2014, Barium Springs Home for Children and Grandfather Home for Children came together to have a greater impact in helping children and families across North Carolina. These sister organizations were both founded by the Presbyterian Synod. The name chosen for the newly formed, merged organization was Children’s Hope Alliance: an alliance forged by our deeply rooted mission to provide hope and healing for hurting children and families.

More information on the Old Fashion Christmas Bazaar

In the past, Bethel Presbyterian Church held an annual BBQ with thousands of dollars going to the Children’s Hope Alliance. After Bethel made the hard decision to discontinue the BBQ, Nanette sprang into action. She started selling her pottery at church and donated all her proceeds to support the children. Olen soon join the program.

We extend an open invitation to come support the various shopping opportunities. In addition to Nanette’s and Olen’s products you will find baked goods, exquisite crafts, cozy quilts, hand-sewn kitchen crafts, unique personalized gifts, exquisite jewelry, captivating paintings and so much more.
