The Northside Baptist Children’s Christmas Shop with help from volunteers just like you have been ministering to children in the Elkhart area and around the world for over 16 years. Each year gifts are donated that allow children ages 3 – 12 who attend Northside as well as those in the local women’s shelter to select gifts for family members in their home. Children are helped with shopping by a personal shopping assistant and afterwards are able to complete a craft while enjoying a snack in the “Kids Korner”.
“Koins for Kids” The children who attend the Christmas Shop are asked to bring in loose change that is donated to a children’s ministry that is not located at Northside. Past children’s ministries include locations such as the Philippines, Africa and Haiti, all monies in the “Koins for Kids” is donated to the ministry and is not used for the Christmas Shop.
November 29th – December 13th
Sign-up will be available at the AWANA check-in and Sunday’s in the Foyer at the Women’s Ministry Tables
