Christmas Gift Shop '19

Open to MCS Elementary Students


Dates: December 17th - 19th, 2019
Place: Elementary Chapel
Price Ranges: $.25 to $20.00 per item


The 2019 Elementary Christmas Gift Shop will be supervised by volunteers who will help your child(ren) pick out their gifts in a familiar, comfortable atmosphere.

We believe this event will continue to create some wonderful memories for the children, while teaching them how to budget their money, make important decisions, and appreciate the value of merchandise they select. It is fun for them to surprise a loved one with a “secret” gift they purchased on their own.

100% of the Christmas Gift Shop proceeds will go directly towards the annual MCC Food Basket Ministry.


Your child will receive a flier and money envelope in their Friday Folder when it gets closer to the event. Use the attached envelope to discuss purchasing plans with your child(ren). Use the spaces provided to insert gift suggestions, amount to spend per person, and any special instructions you wish to give us to help your child(ren) make their purchases.

Be sure to return the envelope on the day your child is scheduled to visit the Christmas Shop.


Our volunteer shop team has over 200 different opportunities to serve almost 300 student shoppers on different days and for different purposes.

Please consider being a part of this important team!
