The Federated Church of Hyannis will hold its festive annual Christmas fair, Christmas Commons, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 3, as part of the Hyannis Village Christmas Stroll.

The church’s Fellowship Hall will be brimming with gifts and goodies available for purchase. Offerings will include fresh, decorated pine wreaths; pre-trimmed Christmas trees; handcrafted holiday decorations; hand-knit articles; themed gift baskets; jewelry; and books. The “Country Kitchen” table will be selling home-baked pies, breads, cakes and cookies as well jellies, jams, pickles and other treats. There will also be a silent auction, including many goods and services donated by Hyannis businesses. One of this year’s standout items is a beautiful brand-new Amish quilt.

In addition, the Coffee Nook will be in operation from 9 to 11 a.m.; and a Lobster Roll and Chowder Luncheon will be served from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Pianist/vocalist Earl Marryat will provide live music during the luncheon.

Christmas Commons will also feature free activities for children – including craft projects and games – from 10 a.m. to noon in Baldwin Hall.

In conjunction with the fair, the church’s Friendly Thrift Shop will have extended hours on Saturday, Dec. 3, also remaining open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The Federated Church of Hyannis is located at 320 Main St. More information may be obtained by calling the church office at (508) 775-0298.
