VRBC partners with our sister churches, Cornerstone Baptist Church in South Dallas, and El Buen Pastor in Lima, and El Reino de Dios, both in Peru, to sponsor Christmas Stores. Each December these two Christmas Stores minister to families by providing hospitality, prayer, Bibles in English and Spanish, wrapped presents for the children, and clothing such as underwear, socks and shirts. On average, our two churches are blessed to serve about 1,375 children (about 480 families) from South Dallas, Coppell, and Valley Ranch at our local store and about 300 children (about 150 families) in Peru. While parents shop at our local store, their children learn Bible stories, play games, make crafts/gifts, and enjoy great food at Kids Korner. We hope that families leave the Christmas Store having experienced the joy and hope of Christ and with wrapped gifts for their children.
- Each of these ministries requires a significant commitment of funds. Thank you to all who helped live out the VRBC value of being hilariously generous!
- The local Christmas Store and Kids Korner take place on the second weekend of December each year, and volunteer signups begin in November on our website.
- The Peru Christmas Store takes place on the first weekend of December each year. Consider going on our Peru Christmas Store mission trip to serve with our Peru missionaries and help with the Peru Christmas Store. Watch the Mission Trips page of our website to learn more about upcoming opportunities to serve.
