The Christmas Season is a time for celebrating our Lord, Jesus Christ, showing love to those around us, and embracing a spirit of giving.
The Christmas Store: Where parents “shop” to receive free gifts for their children! The Store will open daily – from December 8th through December 22nd, 10:00 am – 6:00 pm (excluding Sundays). More than 32 thousand children (32,888) received Christmas gifts last year. [Arlington & Grand Prairie residents need proof of residency. If you live outside of Arlington/Grand Prairie, but within Tarrant or Dallas county, please call regarding which day the store will be open for your area.]
Every adult who comes through the Christmas Store will hear the beautifully true story of Christ’s birth, shared from the Scriptures and narrated by creative & faithful story-tellers. The Store is located here. For more information, and/or for ways you can be involved, click this LINK!

Thank you so much for your support!
Each major event we do, like the ones listed above, generally take a year in advance to get ready. For example, we receive school supplies, Christmas toys, and Thanksgiving food all year long, setting it aside until “the day” arrives.
As you may know, it isn’t at all unusual to have groups sorting and moving Christmas toys in the summer months, because that’s just what it takes to get ready. We work all year long on each holiday event.
Your prayers make a difference, and we appreciate not just the way you give your time when you volunteer, but also the opportunity to work alongside of you day by day. You make it easy to care for people. Thank you. To God be the glory!
