Outreach at Christ UMC

December Outreach Ministry Focus


The Last Minute Toy Store is in partnership with Davidson County Sheriff's Office, the US Marine Reserve Toys for Tots and several area churches including Christ UMC. As the name suggests, the Last Minute Toy Store is the last chance for many families to receive toys who have not been helped by other Christmas charities and organizations. In 2020, over 6,000 children received toys and we hope to do more this year.
