Mission Waco Toy Store

Every Christmas, we partner with Mission Waco to put on a toy store where low-income families have the opportunity to purchase new Christmas toys and gift items for their children. The Toy Store is empowering because, with an 80% discount off retail price, gifts are affordable, but parents still have the dignity of being the ones who purchase the gifts for their children. We will need lots of volunteers to keep the store running smoothly for the day! This event will be held Saturday, December 2, at the Mission Waco Children's Center, aka "The Rock" (1525 West Avenue, Waco, TX 76706). Register online.

Service of Hope

Our Service of Hope is a service of reflection and encouragement for those who've lost a loved one in the past year, as well as for those who simply find themselves in a season of grief. This is an opportunity to experience the ministry of presence, with pastoral staff and church members available for prayer and conversation. This event will be held Wednesday, December 13, at 6p at the Sunwest Campus.
