Nearly a thousand people gathered to revel in the festivities.
On December 1, as festivities adorned Downtown Ventura with the annual tree lighting event, an enchanting celebration unfolded on the opposite side of town – Mission Church’s Christmas Party Extravaganza! This heartwarming spectacle left hearts aglow amid the magic of the season.
Nearly a thousand people gathered to revel in the festivities, surrounded by bounce houses, face painting, (temporary) tattoos, popcorn, hot cocoa, cotton candy, giveaways, Christmas candy, and the joyous sight of Santa posing for pictures under snow falls. Adding to the festive ambiance, the classic Elf movie played in the parking lot amidst laughter and cheer.
Beyond the glitz, Mission Church had a deeper mission at heart. The event served as a beacon for a noble cause – the collection of new toys for the Holiday Toy Store, offering hope to foster families in our county during the Holiday season.
In collaboration with James Storehouse, Mission Church is on a heartfelt mission to gather new toys for the Holiday Toy Store. This unique store provides a free holiday shopping experience for families affiliated with Children and Family Services in the County. The grand finale will be hosted at Mission Church, turning the lobby into a haven for caregivers to shop for the Christmas wishes of the children under their care in a joyous and dignified manner on December 15 and 16.
