Missions

Christmas Store

Everyone is welcome to volunteer and 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 15.

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 Opportunities

Serve on the BIG DAY, Thursday, December 19, when families can shop in the Christmas Store at Exchange Avenue Baptist Church. 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!

Preschool and Children’s Mission Christmas

Winter can be a brutal time of year especially if you need warm clothes and have no means of purchasing necessary items. The Preschool Ministry and Children’s Ministry will be collecting the following as part of our mission program:

  • New socks (all sizes), gloves, scarves, hats, and new underwear (all sizes). These will be taken to the Mission Center the first week of January.
  • Please encourage your child to pick out the new items and bring to the Children’s Wing for drop off by December 29.
