Eastern Baptist Association
Toy Store Ministry
The Toy Store Ministry serves many children and their families in our Duplin and Sampson County communities at Christmas. Our churches donate toys and other items and 12 of our churches host an event wherein the children and parents can come to receive the gifts. Of course it is not all about the toys, stockings filled with treats or bags of food for the family but most importantly it allows us time to share the greatest gift ever, the love of Jesus and the salvation He offers. The families are also given a bible and we have prayer with them. There have been several salvations as a result and families have been discipled through our participating churches. We serve over 1000 children each year.
The annual Billy N. Harrell Memorial Golf Tournament is an annual event that helps fund The Toy Store Ministry.
