The Christmas Store is a ministry of Houston's First Baptist Church's Faith Center-Spring Branch. Each year, families from mission churches we support and other organizations are invited to come and "shop" for gifts for their family members. While at The Christmas Store, they also learn about the true gift of Christmas — Jesus Christ.
The families who are invited to The Christmas Store get to “shop” on a designated day in early December set aside for people from their respective groups. This format creates a greater sense of community as families see familiar faces, and enables our volunteers to have more one-on-one time with the people we serve.
As always, this amazing ministry relies on the Houston’s First family to provide the thousands of gifts needed to fully stock our shelves. So bring a new, unwrapped gift on Collection Day for The Christmas Store!
Here's a list of suggested items for each age group and gender. You are not limited to these items, but these have proven to be very popular items that family members request each year!
Life Bible Studies at The Loop Campus are assigned a particular age group and gender to ensure that there are enough new, unwrapped gifts to cover everybody. View the list of assigned gifts.
If you are not in a Life Bible Study — or if you are and you want to give more — you are welcome to bring a new, unwrapped gift for any age group and gender!
