Christmas Joyland

What is Christmas Joyland?

Christmas Joyland provides assistance to families in our community and church who could use help with purchasing affordable new gifts for their children at Christmas. Rather than simply coming to the church to pick up a donated item, families receive the dignity and joy of selecting and purchasing items priced at a deeply discounted rate (because they have been donated).  Gift Registries have been built (see below) to ease your purchasing experience, or you can donate funds and we’ll shop for you.  Profits from the store are reinvested in selected ministries in our community. 

 The Christmas Joyland event also provides Grace Covenant families, friends and community groups an opportunity to serve together while blessing our shoppers with the love of the Savior whose birth we celebrate at Christmas.

Can I volunteer to help?

Absolutely! Every aspect of the Christmas Joyland is dependent onVolunteers. There are a variety of ways for adults, students and children to get involved – from distributing Wish Lists, to collecting and pricing toys, to stocking the shelves, and warmly greeting our guest shoppers. Each position has a limit on volunteers needed so you’ll want to register early to secure your favorite spot. Register to volunteer no later than Dec 4, 2022.
