The Toy Store Ministry is one our largest ministries at Hillside Park Baptist Church.  It is meant to be a blessing to all the families we are able to help, however the biggest blessing is to everyone involved in the ministry.  Applicant families are generally from Davidson county but some of the families have come from Forsyth and Guilford counties.  The ministry doesn't begin and end during the Christmas season but has become a year around activity.  The gathering and purchasing of toys continues all throughout the year and applications are sent out to families in need of this ministry around the first of November. Each applicant is called to set an appointment to come in to the church to receive their blessing. We share God's Word and pray with each family prior to giving them the toys for their children. Some of these families don't know Jesus as their savior and are given their first opportunity receive His salvation which is by far the most priceless gift they could receive.
