MIDLAND - Cornerstone Christian Fellowship Church is hosting a toy drive and gospel concert this year to give every child a chance to have a Merry Christmas.

The church hopes to help over 200 families this year. The event is free for all kids but adults must bring at least one unwrapped toy to enter.

"When you come to the event, not only will it be a toy drive, but you will also be able to come to a service, where you can give a gift, be a blessing and receive a blessing," Roy Perkins of GODS+WAY, said.

"The event is just kind of showing everybody that the body of Christ is just coming together and kind of giving an opportunity to give out some toys to the kids who don't have anything," Mark Barraza with Church in the Hood, said.

The ministries hope to help over 200 families this year by giving each child in need a gift for Christmas but the the gifts given are not all material things.

"What we're trying to infuse with these kids is to give them a sense of hope, give them a sense of love, give them a sense that somebody still cares about them," Perkins said. 

"Preaching the gospel, showing that people do have a chance in life and that God can actually turn a negative into a positive," Barraza said. 

Several different ministries are coming together to help put on this event. Those ministries are: Cornerstone Christian Fellowship Church, Kingdom Soldiers, Mission Agape, Church in the Hood, Elevate, GODS+WAY and Kingdom Muzik. 

"December 19 is the actual event, 7 p.m. here at Cornerstone Christian Fellowship. All kids are free. All adults just bring an unwrapped gift and everything else will be in God's hands."

The event calls for toy donations but any item that would be of help to the children during Christmas time is also accepted. The Elevate Ministry will be donating coats and bibles to the families.

"They can drop off unwrapped toys at Robert's Auto Care off of Big Spring Street and also here at Cornerstone Christian Fellowship Church. If they want to donate, they can make a donation to Chase Bank under Kingdom Soldiers or they can see us online at www.godswayonline.org."
