Christmas Emphasis 2018
Everyone is welcome to volunteer with the HappyTimers’ Ministry as they help the Baptist Mission Center in Oklahoma City prepare for the annual Christmas Store. The Baptist Mission is in need of food, toys, gifts for teenagers, and personal care items. Please bring items to the Church by Sunday, December 16.
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 good 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 historically fall short in this group every year. Gift cards (stores, fast food, etc.) work well.
- Blankets and Quilts
Volunteer to help set up the Christmas Store on December 18, and 19. Also, volunteer on the BIG DAY, Thursday, December 20, when families can shop in the Christmas Store. Leave EFBC at 8:00 AM and return around noon. On the BIG DAY, volunteers will help with the Christmas Store by:
- helping families shop and select gifts for their families.
- helping them to their cars.
- praying with them for a Merry Christmas!
