A Special Christmas Season

Christmas Every Day

At Mission Arlington®, we like to say that “It’s Christmas here every day!” If you’ve been to our “Front Room” then you know that we keep a Christmas tree up all year long.  The star at the front of our building reminds us of the Bethlehem star which pointed the way to Christ. There is just something about the gift of God’s Son, Jesus Christ, to the world, which captivates us, and energizes our work.

Christmas Ministries

Though our free Christmas Store is what most people know about, we also participate in “Angel Tree” and “Adopt A Family” approaches to providing Christmas for the children in our community.

The Christmas Store

Open for 13 days in December, our Christmas Store is free. Though we do open one day for residents of Tarrant and Dallas counties, the Store is primarily designed to serve Arlington & Grand Prairie families. We work all-year-long to get the store ready, and the gifts for children are donated directly by our community.

This year, 26,481 children in 6,480 families, received Christmas Gifts.  More than six thousand (6,300) individuals, families, churches, schools, colleges, businesses, and community groups volunteered in the store.

The Christmas Story

For us, the most important part of the Christmas Store is the “Christmas Story.”  Before moms & dads enter the store, they have the opportunity to hear the Christmas Story from Luke chapter 2.  This year, volunteers shared the story in seven (7) different languages – (English, Spanish, Sign, French, Romanian, Ukrainian, Arabic).  As a result, 941 different adults made spiritual commitments of some kind.  Two hundred sixty-two (262) people made first time decisions to trust the Lord for salvation.


We are so humbled for the privilege we have of walking this journey with you.  Thank you for the way you gave, so that people could hear the message of God’s love, and also, so that they could find Christmas gifts under their tree.
