VRBC partners with our sister church, Cornerstone Baptist Church in south Dallas and families in the Coppell/Valley Ranch ISD to love and serve the community during the Christmas season through our annual Christmas Store. This year the Christmas Store will look a bit different due to COVID-19 restrictions. On Saturday, December 5th, approximately 200 pre-registered families representing 500 children from Coppell and Valley Ranch will pick up their wrapped gifts, a Walmart gift card, a food box, underwear, socks, and t-shirts in a drive by setting. A car host will also be there to wish our guests a Merry Christmas and to pray with them. Simultaneously the same will be happening at Cornerstone Baptist Church, where 175 families representing 400 children will be served. In addition, at registration, each family will receive information on each church, a Bible, and hear the good news of Jesus Christ. This year will mark our 21st Christmas Store.
Beginning October 7th, you will be able to go online to volunteer at vrbc.net/christmasstore. There are many areas in which to serve. This year most of the volunteer opportunities will begin in mid October and of course, on the day of the Store, December 5. Whether you enjoy gift wrapping, some heavy lifting, preparing food items, or praying with a guest, there is a volunteer spot for you!
We hope that everyone who serves in this ministry, whether behind the scenes or praying with our guests will overflow with the love of Jesus. It is our prayer that those we serve will feel loved, treated with dignity, and cared for. We believe that if we are showing our guests what it’s like to be a follower of Christ, and they do not know the Lord or have a church home, they will find one at Valley Ranch Baptist Church.
