 Housed in the former First Christian Church (corner of Broadway/Hwy 80 and Wildcat Drive), the Agape House will host the Christmas Food and Toy Drive that was started several years ago by Sit’em Down Cowboy Church. Beginning Saturday, December 1st through Friday, December 14th, volunteers will be available daily 8am-5:30pm at the Agape House to receive food and toys for Christmas and plus donations of new or gently used winter coats of all sizes.

 The Agape House was created by the churches of the Big Sandy area in 1992 and is governed by the Big Sandy Ministerial Alliance. Director Sharon Hill oversees the daily operation with assistance from many outstanding volunteers. Regular hours are Monday and Wednesday, 8am to 2pm. Agape House is located at 112 West Broadway – 903-636-4471.
