Christmas Corner Shop

Each Christ’s Church campus will offer a Christmas Corner Shop that provides new toys / gifts at greatly discounted prices to local families and children in financial hardship. This effort provides a dignified shopping experience for the parents / guardians. Shoppers are identified through our various local partner service organizations.

It’s a hand up, not a hand out and allows us to develop better relationships with those we serve versus a one-sided gift.

How You Can Help

1. Volunteer

Can you give a few hours this season to bless area families in need? Sign up at the Community Christmas table or here online.

Shop Days by Campus:

  • Fleming Island: December 1 from 5-9pm & December 2 from 8am-4pm
  • River City: December 2 from 8am-4pm
  • Mandarin: December 8 from 5-9pm & December 9 from 8am-4pm
  • St. Augustine: December 9 from 8am-4pm

2. Donate new, unwrapped gifts

Suggested gifts for infants, children, teens and senior adults can be found here.

Drop off donations (at any campus) on November 26 between 5pm and 8pm. You can also purchase gifts via our Amazon Wishlist (coming soon) and have them shipped directly to the church (delivery any time prior to November 26).

3. Donate financially

We rely on your generous contributions to pay for the thousands of toys we purchase and for other expenses. Your donation is tax-deductible. Make out checks to “Christ’s Church” with a “Community Christmas” note and place donation in weekend offering or drop off at the Christmas Corner Shop table during weekend services from now through November 26. You can also Donate Online Here.

4. Mission Kids

Our mission partners include 21 children under 18 years of age. Christ's Church would like to send $50 per child to each of our missionary families so these parents can purchase gifts for their children. If you'd like to make a tax-deductible donation for these families, please drop off your check made out to Christ's Church with a note: Mission Kids or use the donation link and type: Mission Kids. Donate Online Here.


 

Salvation Army Kettle Bell Ringing

When you volunteer to bell ring or give at a red kettle, you help improve, and even save lives. The money dropped in a kettle goes right back into your local community. Every day of the year The Salvation Army provides basic needs, housing, youth services, rehabilitation, and counseling and spiritual care to people in the communities we serve. The Salvation Army is also often the first to arrive and the last to leave during times of disaster or crisis.
