The Toy Shop

The Toy Shop is a community outreach ministry that serves families of the Edmonds Food Bank, Washington Kids in Transition, and others in the community during the Christmas season. Those in need are invited to attend a one-day event where volunteers provide hospitality and assist in helping parents to choose gifts for their children. We are expecting to serve between 800-1,000 children at the toy shop this year to be held on December 9. 

Registration for Toy Shop Clients has closed.

Toy Donations

A Giving Tree will reside in the church narthex starting the first week in November. The Giving Tree will have ornaments with information on gift needs for specific ages.

  • After-worship Toy sales – if you don’t have time or just don’t know what to get - find something at the after-worship toy sales held on Nov 26 and Dec 3 in the narthex.
  • New This Year! – Amazon wish list. How easy is this? Place an order and have it shipped to the church. It’s that simple.

Used items should be in “gift-giving” condition (gentle wear is okay, but please no holes, stains, broken piece, etc.)
