The Community Christmas ToyShare was established several years ago by Central Baptist Church in Kannapolis, NC to help underserved families in the Rowan and Cabarrus area have a Merry Christmas. Through the support of our church members and local businesses, we are able to provide over 400 children (and their parents) the opportunity to pick out a first-choice toy to take home. If funding allows, parent stockings, candy, Bibles and athletic balls are given to families as well.
As part of the ToyShare experience, families are encouraged to attend an assembly, where a drawing for bikes and gift cards to local businesses are given away. During this assembly, which we deem as the most important part, we make sure they all attendees understand that God loves them, Central Baptist loves them, and we are here to serve our community.
2023 UPDATES: This year, we will be getting out of the vehicles and going inside to fellowship together. You will enter through the Moose Road side of the church and check-in under the side awning at your chosen time below. You will then park and wait for your group to be called inside to the service where a message will be shared. Once the service is completed, you will proceed to our giving trail. Here you will be given candy, stockings, Bibles, sports balls, and toys for your children as supplies last. Please be sure to arrive 30 to 45 minutes before your chosen time as we do anticipate a crowd. Remember, in order for your child to receive toys, they must be present at the event.
To give back to our community by helping families out at Christmas time and sharing the gospel with others who may come to know Christ as their Savior.
