Welcome to theAlternative Christmas Market

For 36 years, the Alternative Christmas Market at Solana Beach Presbyterian Church has sought to reclaim the Christmas message by offering an alternative to the consumer frenzy that has taken over the holiday season.

Standing above all the decorations and celebrations of the holidays is this simple message: "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son." Giving is the very heart of Christmas, and it is the heart of our market as well.

On this website you will meet mission partners working all over the world as the hands and feet of Jesus. Please take a minute to read their stories, watch the highlight videos and allow God to move you as He has moved us.
