Catalyst Church is thrilled to once again host our annual Toy Store on Wednesday, December 13 from 6pm- 8pm. This event is a Christmas outreach ministry focused on sharing the wonder of Christmas and the hope that Jesus brings through the blessing of giving gifts and food to selected families in our community (by invitation only).


How it works:

  • Onslow County Schools and Catalyst Church have partnered together to identify families in our community who are in need this year.
  • Catalyst members will select a child from each family and purchase the items on his or her Christmas wish list. 
  • Catalyst members can also donate gift wrap, and gift cards to help fund a complete Christmas Day meal for each family.
