Each year in early December, Market Square members cook homemade soup, bake bread, and make delicious desserts to raise money for HELP Ministries of Christian Churches United. Over the past 30 years, Market Square Bistro has raised more than $172,000.00 for CCU’s Help Ministries, providing funds to assist those with emergent needs in our community.

This is a completely volunteer effort with 100% of the money raised goes toward HELP Ministries of Christian Churches United.

Thank you to everyone who helped make BISTRO 2019 a success.  We raised $7,429.24, which has been sent to Christian Churches United, as our Bistro proceeds have every year since 1990 to benefit their work with individuals with emergency needs through their HELP Ministries program.
