Baptist Mission Center Christmas Store
Receive your blessing by being a blessing! The Baptist Mission Center in Oklahoma City is preparing for the annual Christmas Store. What a blessing it is to minister to families! The Mission needs food, toys, gifts for teenagers, and personal care items. Donated items need to be delivered to the Church Oﬃce by Sunday, December 3. Christmas Store needs include gifts for the following age groups:
- Birth - 1 Year
This is the lightest area of demand. Maybe 10% of the families we serve have children in this category.
- 1-5 Years
Easy age to purchase for. The dollar stores are a useful source for this age group. Make sure they are age appropriate.
- 6-12 Years
By far the largest group we service.
- 13-18 Years
Diﬃcult age to purchase for, but we fall short in this group every year. Gift cards (stores, fast food, etc.) work well.
- Blankets, Quilts, and Clothing
Plan to help set up the Christmas Store on December 4, 5, and 6. Volunteers are needed to help with the big day on Thursday, December 7, when families select their gift items. Meet at the church at 8:00 AM and plan on returning around 1:30 PM. The Baptist Mission will provide a light lunch. For more info, contact Carl Schwab, 405-348-7835.
